Neoregelia Carolinae Tricolor: Bromeliad

Neoregelia is a somewhat unusual name many of us have become familiar with since house plants became so popular. (All the bromeliads referred to here, incidentally, are good for growing in the house, at least for reasonably extensive periods of time.) The one usually available is Neoregelia carolinae tricolor with cream and green variegated, red-centred leaves arranged in a rosette, at the centre of which are borne the small violet flowers. The cup-like centre of this plant, too, is kept full of water and the cultural conditions needed are as for Billbergia nutans except that more water is needed in winter.
