Hohenbergia stellata
provided by wikipedia EN

Hohenbergia stellata is a perennial species of the genus Hohenbergia. It is native to Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique, Netherlands Antilles, Venezuela, and northeastern Brazil (Alagoas, Bahia, Piauí etc.).[1][2][3][4]

Hohenbergia stellata exhibits sharp spines in its inflorescence. Flowers are purple-red and are present along the plant's strong stem, which grows up to 100 cm tall.[5] In Brazil this plant forms a microhabitat of the tarantula Pachistopelma bromelicola.[6]

Taxonomic Status

Some research suggests that the Hohenbergia stellata may actually be more closely related to members of the genus Aechmea than to other species of Hohenbergia.[5]
