    DESCRIPTION

    Scientific Name: Neoregelia
    Family Name: Bromeliaceae
    Plant Habit: Epiphytes

    Neoregelia bromeliads
    and their hybrids, due to their varied forms and beautiful colors, are commonly cultivated as houseplants, or in warm climates as landscape plants.

    CARE AND GROWING TIPS:

    Foliage / Indoor Plant

    Exposure
    Bright, natural light is best – like an east or west exposure. Neoregelia need this light to bring out the variegation in their foliage.

    Avoid direct sun.

    Water
    Neoregelias collect & absorb water in their urns & also through their foliage.

    Keep the urn about 1/4 full. Let the cup go dry for 2-7 days before refill with a little water. Moisten the growing medium every month or 2 with a good misting once a week.

    Soil
    Use orchid bark or cymbidium orchid mix as well as a mix of orchid bark & coco coir. This is a more sustainable substitute for peat moss. Just make sure your mix drains really well.

    Fertilizer
    Use an all-purpose orchid food (orchids are epiphytes just like bromeliads) diluted to 1/2 strength to fertilize once or twice a year is enough. Best to spray the fertilizer onto the foliage & moisten the top 1/2 of the growing medium.

     

    REASONS YOUR NEOREGELIA MAY NOT BE DOING WELL:

    Excessive fertilizing.
    Cup rot.

    2 things to avoid:
    Do not use garden soil
    Avoid potting mediums that become saturated.
