Details

 

Aechmea Pepita Elegant Flames is a gorgeous bromeliad with a red and yellow flame-shaped flower which is as spectacular as it is easy to look after.

The flower spikes will last for many months and although the mother plant only blooms once, it will continue to produce young offshoots.

Light: Aechmeas like bright light, near an east or west window would be ideal. They need this exposure to bring out the variegation in their foliage & also to flower. Just be sure to keep it out of direct, hot sun because it’ll burn.

Water: Keep the cup in the central rosette about half full of water at all times; however, don’t keep it completely full, as it may rot, especially during the winter months. Empty the cup every month or two so the water doesn’t become stagnant. Additionally, water the potting soil well every month or two, or whenever the soil is somewhat dry, depending on temperature and humidity in your home. Decrease water during the winter months and keep the soil on the dry side.

Non-Toxic

Pot size: 12cm

Brilliant service, plus took lots of care packaging up my plant so it arrived safely! Will definitely be back :)

This is my 2nd rescue plants and you don't let me down. I follow you at your displays and wish I lived closer but I would need a bigger house! I cannot fault your customer service, made to feel individual and get prompt service, attention and great packaging. Would recommend to everyone as they do ship across the UK and the plants are brilliant!

Steve and Lewis provide expertise advice and excellent customer care.  I ordered a beautiful plant for a friend's 50th. They packaged it professionally and beautifully which my friend commented on when she received it by post in pristine condition.  It was a lovely surprise for her! I highly recommend this company for all your plant requirements! Thanks guys!

Steve and Lewis are so incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I always leave with a smile on my face and a bag full of really high quality plants and plant related paraphernalia. They only stock the best products, and both shops are 100% good vibes. I’d never shop for my houseplant needs anywhere else. Thank you both!!

Nonica

Just picked up my rescue box and had a great chat with Steve about plant care. Having just moved house he gave me great comfort about my plants which are not looking great right now. I always love popping into Urban Tropicana as who ever is there helps me learn more about plants and is always up for a chat about the plants at home.
Thanks again and I know I will see you again soon.
