Neoregelia 'Dulce de Leche'
A hybrid by Lisa Vinzant is a cultivar of 'Outrigger' x crispata. A miniature hybrid that makes a great hanging plant. Olive green colored leaves have undersides with a reddish bronze veneer with red banding. The top side of the leaves lack the veneer and the red banding is almost absent on the tops of the leaves. The shape is a loose flaring rosette with a stoloniferous habit.
Neoregelia 'Sun Ball'
A hybrid by Lisa Vinzant. We notice that this plant is not currently registered, and that there is another plant by the same name by the late Jim Elmore. This plant is a nice small grower, basically an improved Fireball of which this is almost certainly a hybrid of. A nicer plant than Fireball, with a more leafy rosette and better shape and with a dark candy apple red coloration. Same stoloniferous habit as Fireball. A very nice plant and good terrarium subject.
Neoregelia 'Rio Ocher' x olens 'Vulcan'
An as yet unnamed cross of Neoregelia ‘Rio Ocher’ x olens ‘Vulcan’ is an apple green plant with a vivid red center flush at anthesis. The inch and a half wide leaves are somewhat thick and leathery and the marginal spines are small. It develops some red cross-banding on the leaves which become more pronounced with strong light or when grown “harder”. Offsets are on short stolons and the plant is good for mounting and for terrarium use.
A hybrid of (lilliputiana x ‘Blushing Tiger’) by Michael Kiehl. This is a great little miniature that looks like a mini ‘Blushing Tiger’. Good for terrariums and its stoloniferous habit makes it a nice choice for a hanging pot.
A medium size plant with 20 inch wide upright flaring rosette of dark green leaves. The leaves have white margins. It has a hot pink veneer and is densely crossbanded with pink/red. There isn't any color change at anthesis.
Small stoloniferous plants, green with red spots. Can take on an overall reddish hue in bright conditions. Great for terrariums and hanging pots.
