Neoregelia 'Fireball'

Neoregelia have spiny, strap-shaped leaves growing in rosettes or tubular forms with water holding reservoirs. The flowers grow in the heart of the plant and may occur at any time of year. In some species, the floral bracts can change colour when blooming commences. 'Fireball' has deep wine-red leaves reaching 4 to 6 inches tall. This tender perennial spreads up to 25cm wide and produces small plantlets when grown in moist, humid locations. This tropical plant flowers with a cluster of tiny blue flowers when grown in the right conditions.
