Aechmea 'Bitter Sweet' is a fabulous Aechmea Hybrid by Jeffery Kent of Vista, CA. This cross of orlandiana X (dichlamydea v. trinitensis x weilbachii) is extremely popular and subject to limited availability due to the nature of it's brilliant coloring and lavish spots. The basic coloring will tend to be a green leaf background when shade grown. Given more intense light, the coloring turns to an absolute vibrant burnt orange with deep chestnut spotting for contrast. This Hybrid can grow quite large reaching on average up to 24" tall.
