Ananas lucidus Variegated

UPDATE AS OF 7/7/2011

New photos of this plant thats going to flower as of 4/7/2011
I like it more ever day.

Ananas lucidus and Ananas comosus var. erectifolius is the same plant. But how we have a NEW variegated form and its great looking.

A decorative pineapple with colorful miniature fruit. In spite of its size (over three feet tall), it is still considered a rather small species because of its upright habit. A showy species with slender, stiff but spineless leaves of coppery reddish brown and tennis ball sized, bright red fruit.

Culture: needs full sun - part sun
Allow the plant to dry in-between waterings. Fertilize every 4-week with a balanced fertilizer diluted to ½ the strength recommended on the label.
