Also know as star flowers these fabulous plants originate from the rain forests of South America and so are great for the warm temperatures in houses. The "flowers" are actually striking bracts that have the most striking vibrant purple colour. These last for about 4-6months during which time the smaller real flowers will appear. The main plant then dies but new little plantlets will then appear at the bottom of the plant. Keep plants misted and fill central bracts topped with water.
These plants are epiphytes living in the canopies of trees. They perform some of their photosynthetic processes at night -absorbing Carbon dioxide and releasing pure Oxygen, so these plants are fantastic for helping you to breathe easier at night and helping to improve sleep.
