All Cryptanthus belong to the Bromeliad family which includes pineapples and Spanish Moss. Almost all of the species in this genus are found in Brazil. They are all terrestrial plants that can be found growing in almost any condition; in the sun, in the shade, in wet areas, and in dry areas, at sea level or high in the mountains. Most plants consist of a large root system and a low spreading rosette of 5 to 20 leaves. The leaves can be mottled or striped, and they come in brown, rose, green, silver, gray, copper, pink, white, or red. Most plants are small, 4″-6″. They like bright light and well drained soil.
