plant of the week

Nidularium fulgens is the most well-known species of an unknown genus and was first described by Charles Lemaire in 1854. This bromeliad is endemic to tropical rainforests of the southeastern region of Brazil. It is only found growing in the wild in this relatively small area. While in the Orangery, stop by the bromeliad greenhouse, the third from Marnie’s Pavilion, to see Nidularium fulgens on display.
