Nidularium 'Exotica Shell Pink'
This is a lovely form of Nidularium rutilans that I selected from a large group of this species I grew from seed. As with most of this species, they grow to 30cm high by 40cm wide. The distinctive feature is the shell pink star shaped flower spike. Like many Nidulariums, this can stay in colour for up to 12 months. Great pot plant, also as an epiphyte or under dense foliage in the garden. Prefers deep shade. Can take light frosts.
