Vriesea gigantea var. seideliana 'Nova'

Images are for reference to show the size of plant you can expect to receive. We can only pack 2, 6" pots per box, if you are interested in any 2 plants from our tropical line, please email us so we can provide you with a better shipping quote.

A spectacular clone of the Brazilian species 'gigantea'. The rosette reaches a massive 30 inches wide, with strap like green leaves, tessellated with light yellowish-green. As the plant matures, the striations become almost white. A shade lover and frost-tender plant. Large specimens are much sought for the interior and patioscape trade. A slow grower that makes a great terrarium plant when young. An excellent grower responding to pot size and fertilizer to reach its maximum size. 'Nova' is very similar to the original, wild clone 'gigantea' which is commonly seen as an epiphyte or lithophyte in its native range.

These are well established plants in 6” pots with a strong root system.

Color intensity will vary depending on lighting available and time of year.

Please note these plants are NOT the usual plants you see on offer that are recently transplanted from plugs. These plants are full, well established plants with a well developed root system and therefore very heavy. The plant cannot be shipped via First Class Mail. Priority Mail is the only option due to the weight and size of the plant. 

We cannot combine orders for these auctions at this time and all plants on auction in 6” pots will need to be packed and shipped individually. 

Shipping price is at cost automatically calculated based on your zip code. We will never charge more than actual cost to ship, if an overpayment  is received for shipping, we will refund any difference. 

Please know how to grow these before ordering. We are not responsible for poor culture or inexperience in growing this genus. We assure the arrival of healthy, disease free plants, ready for you to grow on and will never sell anything we would not purchase ourselves. If the post office damages your package and your plants arrive damaged, please contact us with pictures of the plants and the box so we may file a claim.
