A large, epiphytic bromeliad, widely distributed but uncommon in deciduous and semideciduous forests between sea level and 1700 m from central Mexico throughout Cental America and south to Ecuador. It has broad, straplike, green leaves with toothed margins and produces an upright, whitish wooly inflorescence with pinkish or purplish red flowers. Aechmea mexicana makes a great ornamental for the tropical and warm temperate garden, where it can be grown on large trees but also on the ground or in containers in well drained substrate.
