Neoregelia ampullacea 'Bert'
A 3 to 4 inch tall plant with upright growth and distinctly pointed leaf tips. Dark green with pronounced brown banding below and faint banding becoming speckles on the upper sides. Offsets on short stolons, it forms attractive clusters and thrives potted or mounted. This clone has a different appearance than most other ampullacea cultivars.
A fairly small, stoloniferous plant with gray-banded, stiff green leaves with bright red tips. The base of the plant is brownish and the leaves have a slight dusting of red speckles. The flowers are blue and white, but there is no center flush at anthesis. Reportedly native in the area of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Neoregelia burlemarxii 'Small form'
A showy little species in a 6 to 8in rosette, with green leaves, overlaid with a veneer of red, speckled and splashed with green. The center flush at anthesis is pink, and the speckling in the center turns white. Nice
A nice small species from the Atlantic Forest of Rio de Janeiro with a stoloniferous habit, forming stiff leaved, somewhat tubular rosettes. The pointed leaves are reddish below and green above, improving in strong light.
Neoregelia species 'Fireball' Green Form
As you may be aware, Fireball is actually an undescribed species that has never been re-collected in the wild. This plant is apparently the same, except that it has green leaves. The size, shape and stoloniferous habit are the same, but the plant only flushes red in the center at anthesis. A very decorative plant when blooming and nice for basket culture or a terrarium anytime.
A new large growing species from the region of the Alto Cariri State Park in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Only published in 2011 by Leme and Kollmann, it is a new species.
An epiphyte in nature, living at medium levels in the forest canopy, up to the top, and in good strong light the leaves are a light green with dark green mottling appears in the leaves. In stronger light it takes on a reddish tint. The leaf tips and edges are trimmed in red. The leaf edges are armed with large spines.
The flowers color is green, and broader leaves and bicolored floral bracts distinguish it from other similar species in the pernambucana complex. A great plant!
Neoregelia x correiaaraujoi albomarginated
An uncommon plant that is not yet widely represented in collections, Neoregelia x correiaaraujoi albomarginated is an enigmatic species considered by some to be a natural hybrid of Neo. johannis and marmorata. It is, however, listed in the binomials and is still an ‘official’ species.
A large growing plant from the southern regions of the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, the rosette can be nearly 4 feet across with leaves 6 inches wide, light green with red mottling, pale above, stronger below, and red leaf tips. In bright light or even full sun it becomes much more compact.
Our clone is a albomarginated, with a wide creamy white stripe up the leaf margins.
