Little rosettes form on six inch stolons, spreading out horizontally, eventually forming a large cluster. Depending upon light and fertilizer levels, the plants will be reddish-green to bright red. Less fertilizer and more light brings out maximum color.
This miniature species has never been properly classified but remains an extremely popular plant. Outstanding in hanging baskets, in landscape and in terrariums.
A medium sized plant to about 20 inches across, with ‘almost’ white leaves. Each leaf bears a broad white stripe up the center with just a narrow margin of green on the leaf edge. The center flush at anthesis is bright red.
Best grown in moderate light to keep the white appearance. Stronger light puts a pink tint in the foliage, which is nice too.
Neoregelia 'Grace's Avalanche'
Grace Goode’s cross of (lilliputiana x ‘Winter Bloom’). Small growing with an ampoule shape, stoloniferous growth and compact foliage. Yellowish green with abundant speckling above and nice bold banding below.
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.
This is a cute small species with a stoloniferous habit, soft yellow-green leaves, barred with red, in an open rosette. Has been in cultivation for a long time, under various names. Nice for use in a hanging basket or a terrarium.
Neoregelia 'Mo Peppa Please'
This great little Jim Irvin hybrid is a cultivar of ‘Angel Face’ x ampullacea ‘Midget’ that matures at about 6 inches but can grow somewhat larger if fed heavily. The growth is compact in a stiff-leaved rosette of glossy, olive green leaves heavily speckled with tiny, pepper-like burgundy dots.
A cute little jewel, great for a pot, hanging basket, mounting or terrarium.
A colorful miniature Neo. by Grace Goode is a hybrid of (punctassima x liliputiana). A very small grower to barely 4 inches tall in an upright, funnel form rosette shape. Leaves are light green which is almost completely obscured by red spots, blotches and bands on both sides of the leaf. The foliage is rather stiff with tiny marginal spines and an apiculate tip. Offsets are on short stolons.
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 'Hannibal Lector #2' "Clarise"
An unusual, very decorative hybrid from Chester Skotak, with a name that reflects his famed, warped wit. Three clones exist, all selections of a grex resulting from the cross of Neo. punctatissima x carcharodon 'Tiger'. This clone is a bit more compact growing and slightly darker than the 'typical' clone.
Neoregelia bahiana 'Pink Tips'
This is a complex species with many different forms, some of which formerly had their own species names. Native mainly to Bahia and Minas Gerais, Brazil, they are as a group lithophytic with upright growth, thick, stiff leaves and colors from green to gray and red. This form has about a dozen very broad leaves, is upright, tubular and flaring with apiculate leaf tips that are pink in color. The base leaf color is gray, having a thick coating of trichomes over a light green leaf. This species typically offsets before blooming. A very fine form.

A compact grower, it will mature at about eight inches across when well grown. Likes bright light and plenty of water. Great for a hanging basket. The leaves are very spiny and recurving with the center flushing bright pink.
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 'Tangerine' variegated
A beautifully variegated sport of Grant Grove’s Tangerine, one of his many beautifully vividly colored hybrids. This variegated form grows fairly large with a full rosette of 2.5 inch wide leaves in a gracefully arching rosette.
The background color of light green blushes uniformly orange or tangerine color and is marked with many narrow lines of creamy white striations. At anthesis the plant will blush stronger orange in the center.
