This stunner, native to the mountains of southeast Asia is also known as the Malaysian orchid or Pink Lantern. It's an epiphytic plant, commonly found growing upright in the forks of trees. However, unlike other air plants, it doesn't absorb atmospheric moisture via its aerial roots, instead it has large succulent-like leaves that store water. In summer the plant is covered by drooping clusters of delicate pink flowers that look somewhat like grapes or wisteria flowers.
Comes in a 14cm grow pot. Decorative pots sold separately. Available JHB, PTA only.
