GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Catopsis is a genus of bromeliad whose name comes from the Greek word “katopsis” meaning view.
  • Catopsis are epiphytes, meaning they grow attached to a substrate, such as a tree, rather than in the ground.
  • These types of plants are also commonly referred to as air plants and their roots are designed to act primarily as anchors.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • You can try equal parts sphagnum peat moss, medium-grade horticultural perlite, and fine fir bark.
  •  1/2 potting soil, 1/4 perlite, and 1/4 orchid bark or equal parts soil-less potting soil, perlite, and pine bark nuggets.
