Scientific Name: Neoregelia cvs..
-Care Recommendations By The Dude-
Best for These Animals:
Bio Dude Substrates: All Substrate Types
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 / 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/ 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 Single 6" potted Bromeliad Neoregelia w/ Offsets / Plant is Shipped bare-root *with offsets attached, wrapped in newspaper
