Description

Neoregelia "Schultesiana" is a selection of the bromeliad species Neoregelia. It is a stemless funnel bromeliad. Neoregelia species are mostly epiphytes, native to humid, tropical regions of South America. The linear-lanceolate leaves of N. "Schultesiana" are graceful, dark green and grow to about 1,5 cm width and 15 - 25 cm length. This graceful bromeliad forms a rosette, which in turn forms a funnel. The funnel collects water and enables the bromeliads in their natural habitats to survive long dry periods well. This funnel water should be replenished at regular intervals outside the flowering period (June - August), but changed every 3 to 4 weeks so that it does not become putrid. N. "Schultesiana" bears flowers that are sunken into the rosette and purple when in flower.

Unlike many other bromeliads, the mother rosette does not die immediately after flower and child formation. Without any intervention, the pups and mother thus grow together to form a pretty and voluminous clump.
But the pups can also be carefully removed and separated when they are about a third of the size of the mother plant.

This bromeliad grows to a height of approx. 20 - 30 cm and therefore fits perfectly into medium and large terrariums.
