GeneralitŠ°

a dozen succulent soil bromeliads, originating in South America, some of which were once classified as abromeitielle belong to this genus. They constitute large and dense cushions, twenty to forty centimeters high, made up of numerous small rosettes of fleshy leaves; the deuterocohnia leaves have sizes ranging from a few centimeters, as in D. brevifolia, up to 10-15 cm, are triangular, similar to those of the pineapple or agave, pointed, rigid, smooth and succulent, green in color brilliant. In spring they produce from the center of the rosettes of leaves a long rigid inflorescence, golden yellow or red.


Exposure

these succulents love very bright positions, possibly exposed directly to sunlight; they can bear temperatures near zero, below which they must be hospitalized in the house or in a tempered greenhouse; in regions with temperate and dry winters they could also be buried in the open ground.
