Neoregelia 'Gunpowder'

 

Neoregelia 'Gunpowder' is a beautiful hybrid from Chester Skotak (carolinae x 'Takemura Princeps') x ('Meyendorffii' x concentrica) which will grow to a 60cm wide rosette. The leaf margins are green with the balance having green & cream stripes of varying widths. At flowering, the plant's upper leaves are suffused with pale rose pink/purple colouring – lovely delicate colour.
Water
Don't over water - just enough to prevent the plant from drying out & to keep fresh water in the centre.
Light
Light shade or filtered sun / 50% shadecloth. Early am or late pm sun.
Fertilizer
Very little or the plant will lose colour. Use a slow release fertiliser higher in potassium.
