This Hybrid of 'Lorena' x 'Hannibal Lecter', has some of the most dazzling coloring you can achieve on a modern Neo Hybrid. The intense blood red glow is enhanced by the almost solid white leaf coloring. Add to this the very glossy leaf surfaces and you get a specimen that is a complete standout in any grouping of Neos. Prefers intense filtered light. Reaches on average from 14" – 16" across 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.
