Neoregelia 'Florida Color Bands' combines flashy red color with with showy yellow-green banding, this seldom seen stunner can grow from 18" to 24" across. With a time release fertilizer added to the potting mixture, this unusual hybrid will keep it's strong red color and increase it's display of banding even more. Prefers strong filtered sunlight for best color. Another excellent plant for the landscape, especially when planted in groupings.
When a bromeliad is ordered on-line, it will either be taken as an offset from a mother plant, or it will be taken from a pot. Either way, it is possible that it has already started to grow roots.
Bromeliads are a type of plant called epiphytes, which means that they draw moisture from the air and don’t need to be in soil to survive. While their roots can draw water and nutrients, they typically serve as a plant’s ‘anchor’, attaching and holding it place.
Although mosquitoes are not a pest that can harm your bromeliads, they can become very annoying to everyone around them. Mosquitoes are currently a topic of conversation as common sense and the facts often give way to rumor and sensationalism.
