Aechmea Blue Rain Growers

Bromeliad Aechmea Blue Rain Whether your interior style is serene and restrained or bursting with life, there’s an Aechmea Blue Rain to match.A majestic pink flower, a purple and pink plume or a red or orange torch emerges from the silver/grey/green ‘vase’ of the Aechmea’s rosette. And as if that’s not spectacular enough, Aechmea’s Blue Rain showstopper sometimes also changes colour during its flowering. What’s referred to as the flower for the sake of convenience is actually mainly fantastic bracts. The flowers themselves are fairly small and not as flamboyant as the rest of the plant. Aechmea Blue Rain has tiny scales on its leaves which form a super-efficient absorption system. In desert regions they also serve as a heat shield, preventing the plant from losing moisture unnecessarily in the burning sun. The more silvery the leaves and the downier they look, the more scales your Aechmea Blue Rain has. This bromeliad also looks after you: it purifies the air of formaldehyde (an unhealthy gas that occurs in tobacco smoke, among other things, but which is also used as a preservative in cosmetics and can be released from furniture). It also produces oxygen at night rather than during the day, unlike many other plants. That makes it the ideal bedroom companion.

Nice to know

Bromelias with thick leaves are happy in a dry environment and Bromelias with thin leaves prefer a somewhat more humid location. That makes an Aechmea Blue Rain Growers do very well on a window sill as they can handle the central heating.
