    Container plant to bring indoors during winter! Zone 8b-11. The Turquoise Puya grows in soil, and can be treated much like a cactus or succulent. Mature plants are said to survive temperatures down to 18-20 degrees F (-7C) if kept relatively dry.

    Puya Berteroniana Turqoiuse Blue is a very rare and interesting plant each spring, this Pineapple relative with a massive flower stalk 6 feet tall & over a foot wide, with the most amazing flowers. Turquoise is an extremely rare color in the plant world, and it's even rarer to be combined with orange. Hardy from zones 8-11 colder areas can plant in container and keep warm for winter.

Start seedlings in an egg shell and, when ready, plant the entire thing. The egg shells will naturally compost providing valuable nutrients to your plants.
