Commonly referred to as the silver vase plant, the urn plant, or Aechmea fasciata, has silver streaks on the leaves that form a vase. A flower stalk appears in the center during spring with light blue flowers that eventually turn to a dark rose color surrounded by a cluster of pinkish bracts. Part of the Bromeliaceae (bromeliad) family and native to Brazil. Silver urn grows well as a houseplant anywhere and will flourish for years indoors when given essential care.
Your Bromeliad Aechmea plant prefers a location with bright indirect sunlight.
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.
While most common indoor plants purify the air during the day, bromeliads release oxygen and remove air pollutants during the night. The Plants for Clean Air Council suggests that when combined with foliage plants, bromeliads can help provide around-the-clock indoor air purification.
These plants are non-toxic to cats and dogs.
