Bromeliad Collection

The Earthstar Bromeliad (Cryptanthus) had given out many pups that I had managed to filled them in this pot and also in few nice designated places to give a good impact in my garden. The pups seemed to grow fast & beautifully into adult stage & the older ones doubles its size.

The only thing is that Earthstars are rarely sold in nurseries.

If they are - you might find them hidden and kept aside as they are not popular any more.

Recently I went to Sg. Buloh nurseries to find any new stock for a different colours of this kind and came back disappointed as there was none.

I had placed some grass looking plants: Spider plants, Variegated Pandanus, Pineapples & Ground Orchid.
I like the grass-like effect in this area where the green blends well with white, yellow and cream together with some sprays of pink & red.

I really love colours in my garden - especially when they are leaves substituting the colourful flowers.


  1. I am no longer able to garden, and had to give away my indoor plants, so I love seeing all of yours! I enjoy your blog.

  2. Hi James! I like how the red foliage stands out on the green background in the first picture.

  3. oh my those are lovely! I have never seen them before - they remind me of starfish...

  4. The Earthstar Bromeliad as showcased in the first photo is lovely. With such colourful foliage, who needs flowers?

  5. How pretty! Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Earthstar Bromeliad is one of my favorites. They come in different colors and blend well with other plants. Your plant combination is impressive. I do have those variegated grass, I planted them close to the ferns...
