Neoregelia 'Tiger Cub' is a superb mini cultivar of ampullacea crossed with tigrina. It grows up to 6 inches tall, is stoloniferous, the green leaves are heavily barred with maroon/red. Colours becoming more intense in bright light.
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.
Stunning plants. Stunning. Arrived in perfect condition.
Beautiful Bromeliad. Andy must have thought it was a bit small so he sent two! Perfect for what I wanted.
Great little plants. I received one with an offset which has doubled in size within a 25 day timeframe. Hopefully they will populate the pot in time.
As always, very well packaged, healthy specimens.
Stunning plants, former came with two pups as well,
