Vriesea gigantea 'Nova' is a remarkable cultivar derived from the original Brazilian species 'gigantea'. This clone showcases a breathtaking rosette that can reach an enormous width of 30 inches. Its strap-like green leaves  have intricate tessellations in a light yellowish-green hue. As the plant matures, these striations gradually transition to an almost white shade, creating a visually stunning effect. 'Nova' thrives in shaded areas and is sensitive to frost, requiring protection in colder climates. Large specimens of this variety are highly sought after for interior and patioscape arrangements. With the right pot size and appropriate fertilizer, 'Nova' can reach its maximum size, showcasing its full potential. It bears a strong resemblance to the original wild clone 'gigantea', which is commonly observed as an epiphyte or lithophyte in its native habitat.

Growth habit: Large

Light requirements: Low Light: Suitable for areas with limited or indirect light, away from direct sunlight. Can thrive in shady conditions with minimal natural light.
