Popular Bromeliad Plant – Neoregelia carolinae ‘Tricolor’
Author: admin4 Comments
This article provides you with a specific profile of the popular bromeliad plant known as Neoregelia carolinae ‘Tricolor’.
Neoregelia carolinae (nee-oh-ree-GEE-lee-uh ka-roh-LIN-uh) – Also known as the “Blushing Bromeliad or Cartwheel Plant.” Blushing bromeliad gets its name from the way the leaves in the center of the plant turn bright red as the plant begins to flower. The blossom itself is not showy and stays nestled deep in the crown. However, the colored vase persists for a few months, until the parent plant dies back and makes way for three or more new offsets. Full-sized blushing bromeliads, sometimes called “neos,” become broad, flat-topped plants, 25 in (62.5 cm) wide and 12 in (30 cm) tall, and plants of any size need abundant warmth and humidity. To grow well, they must feel convinced that they are in a jungle, yet they also need abundant sun. This bromeliad is therefore not for everyone, but is a good choice if you have a bright sunroom that is kept humid at all times.
