Neoregelia 'Blood Plum' is a cross of (carolinae x concentrica) x olens. Introduced by Chester Skotak, 'Blood Plum' is a medium sized variegated neoregelia with dark burgundy & pink coloring with dramatic red spotting and barring. As it's name implies, this hybrid can attain deep dark colors and an overall blush reminiscent of the fruit it was named after. Grows to an average size of 12″ – 14″ across but with an application of time-release fertilizer, it can grow as large as 20″ across.
All plants shipped bare roots unless otherwise noted.
