We are a small family owned nursery in Naples, Florida specializing in bromeliads, plumeria, and adenium for landscapes, lanaiscapes, and for the more exotic collector.
Neoregelia 'Cotton Candy' is Hybrid from Grant Groves. It is a very colorful Hybrid when grown in sufficient light to bring the center of the plant into a deep pink blush. A medium to large sized grower averaging 14" - 16" 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.
