Pitcairnia sanguinea - 85mm

Buy now, pay later with


Pitcairnia sanguinea is a Bromeliad that can handle more shade and moisture than the usual Bromeliads. With broad green leaves with a red underside this plant is great for adding colour to your tropical garden or balcony. 

This baby has a soft curling type leaf and will also happily grow indoors, just remember she doesn't like wet feet so we recommend you use a Sustee to avoid any rotting of roots.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: Great in a pot on the balcony or in a tropical garden

  • I grow to: 80cm high, 60cm wide 

  • Where to place me: I like part shade - full shade. I can handle morning sun just not all day sun 

  • Watering conditions: I like damp but not soggy soil so you only need to water me once or twice a week
  • Soil Conditions: I love a well draining soil 

 Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
