Feel yourself falling down the rabbit hole. Let the foliage fascinate you. So striking. So sumptuous. This is what I love about the bromeliad family of plants. Our model today, a member of this family, is Vriesea fosteriana 'Red Chestnut'. The obvious attraction of this plant is its amazing foliage. It's a visual vortex of voluptuousness. The foliage which comprises the rosette form of Vriesea fosteriana 'Red Chestnut' displays a reticulated pattern of luscious merlot, ivory, and cool green color. So chic!
Vriesea fosteriana 'Red Chestnut' makes a spectacular choice as an indoor houseplant. In warmer climates, it looks amazing in a container or planted out of doors, especially in groups of 3 or more. This bromeliad grows up to 2 feet tall and wide. It likes bright shade or bright indoor light, regular water, and is hardy to 30 degrees fahrenheit/-1 celsius. When it comes to a stylish foliage plant it really can't be beat. It has a rich tropical appeal. The chunky, strappy leaves are cool as well as their incredible coloration. So, if you can find one of these babies and you've got an appetite for some awe-inspiring plant style, check out Vriesea fosteriana 'Red Chestnut'. Let it hypnotize and tantalize you!
