Welcome to The Bio Dude!
A single bromeliad offset picked by the Dude. These are NOT rooted adults but pups that have been removed from the mother plant that are beginning to establish.
*The plant pictured is not necessarily the plant you will receive, but will be same size and shape*
Common Name: Neoregelia Bromeliad
Scientific Name: Neoregelia cvs..
-Care Recommendations By The Dude-
Best for These Animals:
Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFlora, TerraFauna
Soil Depth: Shallow to Moderate with proper drainage
Lighting: Most Light Levels Suitable-- Higher Light will promote brighter coloration
Humidity & Misting: 40%-100% *Higher humidity preferred but can tolerate low humidity once established/ Suggested for Optimal Growth
Mature Plant Size & Root System: Neoregelia stay low and grow wider with age sending out shoots with "pups" or offsets that will eventually grow to full-sized plants, blooming at the center of the plant! These pups can be separated once mature if desired / Shallow fibrous root system, mostly used for anchorage rather than water absorption, as this plant mainly uptakes nutrients by being watered into the center of the plant, allowing the water to flow down into the "tanks" between the leaves of the bromeliad
Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: High temperature tolerant, Drought tolerant when established/ Front (low) placement or mounted (in high humidity environments)
Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Non-Toxic if consumed though these are typically used for ornamental not edible purposes
Pot Size & Packaging: A 1-Count Bromeliad Neoregelia Offset / Plant is Shipped bare-root wrapped in newspaper
