Deuterocohnia longipetala is a perennial evergreen succulent plant that belongs in the pineapple family, Bromeliaceae. D. longipetala is native to Bolivia and Chile where it is found growing on slopes in dry terrain. The long triangular leaves are arranged in a rosette formation that measures about 1 foot tall and 2 feel wide at maturity. The leaves have sharp spines that line that margin and a blue to bright green epidermis. Deuterocohnia longipetala typically blooms in the middle of fall with large clusters of tiny bright yellow flowers that are oppositely arranged on long stalks. This species is grown as an ornamental plant for its perennial growth habit and showy inflorescences. Deuterocohnia longipetala grows best in full sun to partial shade, sitting in well-draining soils. Water the plant adequately during summer and sparingly during the winter. It is a drought-tolerant species and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 9b to 11b.

Deuterocohnia longipetala seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 70°F to 80°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
