Neoregelia 'Picasso' a Hybrid of unknown parentage from Chester Skotak. One in a series of Neos named after the great masters, Picasso is medium to large sized Variegated Neo that ranges in color from bright white to a crimson splash from med leaf to leaf tip. This beauty just keeps on getting more and more intense shades of deep red when exposed to intense filtered sunlight. Another one of Chester Skotak's great introductions. Reaches on average from 16" – 20" across.
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.
