Description

Neoregelia 'Afrodita' is a medium-sized funnel bromeliad with typically rounded leaf tips that then taper to a short spiky tip. Its only very finely spined leaf margins are dark red in colour almost throughout. In addition, small horizontal red lines as well as scattered dark red spots run across the bright green leaf surface. The Neoregelia wild forms are native to rainforests in tropical South America and live mainly epiphytic and only rarely terrestrial.

Once in its life cycle - i.e. monocarpic - the bromeliad develops funnel-nesting, very short inflorescences in the centre of its rosette. The many small flowers open little by little. After the long-lasting flowering, small pups develop at the base of the rosette, which can be carefully detached when they are about a third of the size of the mother plant. Since the mother rosette dies immediately after flowering, the pups can also grow together as a strong clump if they are not separated.

This narrow-leaved and evenly coloured bromeliad is excellent for rainforest terrariums, but can also be kept as a houseplant with proper care.
