What kind of care do I give Cryptanthus?

madabouteu(8A - central Alabama)January 1, 2013

The plants in this genus are adapted to the moist, shady forest floor of coastal Brazil. Bright shade should be combined with a soil that is kept moist at all times. These are not epiphytes and should not be mounted on wood.
