Neoregelia 'Star Wars' is a cross of ((carolinae variegated x Hannibal Lecter) x Norman Bates) x Punctate Red. It is a cultivar of a Skotak cross that was selected and cultivated by Grant Groves. We offer two forms, an albo-marginated and a variegated form. This is the albo-marginated form. The dark green leaves are heavily marked with solid and broken red bands (zonation) and forms a somewhat loose rosette. Averages 16" - 20" wide at maturity.
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.
