Neoregelia 'Iris' is a mini Neo with wonderful dark red leaves. The leaves are variegated green and white with red, in high light levels the leaves become darker and more intense dark red.
I have a few 'pups' of this for sale. These are not full size plants. They are ready to be potted up or mounted on reciept.
Neoregelia's are very easy to grow they can be mounted with some moss and bark to root into or they can be grown in a pot, which i prefer to do as it allows for easy maintanance of the plant. The correct potting medium for most 'tank type' Bromeliads such as Aechmea, Billbergia and Neoregelia is a free draining mix comprising of Peat and potting/orchid bark.
Neoregelias can be grown in high light levels, in fact the more bright light you give them the more intense the coloring on the leaves can become. Although you have to be careful because plants can get scorched in full mid summer sun. Generally more stiff, thick or harder leaved species can take the full sun and softer leaves less so.
Lovely neo with deep red colour with subtle green stripes. As with others we have recieved from Andy's air plants, as shown, and really healthy looking. Very pleased with this purchase
