Found in Brazil, this plant has faced problems with deforestation in the wild, but has become a popular collector plant around the world, helping to conserve the species. The scientific name is a description of the leaf shape; "hastate" as a leaf description means narrow and triangular, like a spearhead.

The leaves grow blue-silver in colour, leading to the common name of 'Silver Sword.'

 

Indoor Care


Bright, indirect or diffused light. No direct sun. 

Water enough to maintain even moisture. Do not allow to dry, or to be soaking wet. This means a very well-draining mix with a lot of coco chips or bark.

Keep humidity medium to high.

Pro tip: Use a well-rounded fertilizer with micronutrients, and give it something to climb.
