Fascicularia is a genus of the botanical family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Bromelioideae. The genus name is from the Latin “fasciculus” (bundle) and “arius” (pertaining to)[2]

Only one species is known, Fascicularia bicolor. It is indigenous to Chile and reportedly naturalized in France and Great Britain.[1] In the wild, all Fascicularias are terrestrial, saxicolous (growing on rocks) or epiphytes.


Two subspecies are recognized:

  • Fascicularia bicolor subsp. bicolor
  • Fascicularia bicolor subsp. canaliculata E.C.Nelson & Zizka
