General Information

Aechmea fasciata (Silver-Vase, Urn Plant) is a bromeliad native to Brazil. This plant is probably the best known species in this genus, and it is often used like a house plant.

The plant grows slowly, reaching to between 1 and 3 feet in height, and spreading up to 2 feet. It has elliptic–oval-shaped leaves that are between 18 and 36 inches long and arranged in a basal rosette pattern.

A. fasciata requires partial shade and a well-drained, but moisture-retentive soil. It can also be grown epiphytically, as, for example, with moss around its roots and wired to rough bark. There aren't too many serious pests to the plant, but root rot can be a problem if the soil is too moist.

Scale insects and mosquitos will sometimes breed in the pools of water that are trapped between leaves.

I have one of these that has been alive for about 5 years now. I believe it may bloom again soon.
