Aechmea fasciata (silver vase, urn plant) is a species of flowering plant in the bromeliad family, native to Brazil. This plant is probably the best known species in this genus, and it is often grown as a houseplant in temperate areas. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden plant grows slowly, reaching 30--90 cm (12--35 in) in height, with a spread of up to 60 cm (24 in). It has elliptic--oval-shaped leaves 45--90 cm (18--35 in) long and arranged in a basal rosette fasciata requires partial shade and a well-drained, but moisture-retentive soil. It can also be grown epiphytically, as, for example, with moss around its roots and wired to rough bark. Root rot can be a problem if the soil is too insects and mosquitos will sometimes breed in the pools of water that are trapped between the leavesVideo Credit: AstrohansLicense: CC BY-SA
