Description

Neoregelia 'Xantipa' is a fascinating species of bromeliad characterised by its spectacular colours and patterns. Originally from the tropical rainforests of South America, this plant has adapted to humid and warm conditions, making it an ideal choice for keeping in terrariums. Neoregelia 'Xantipa' is characterised by a compact growth habit, with a dense rosette of leathery leaves that can effectively collect water and nutrients. This plant is easy to care for as long as it receives sufficient indirect light and is kept in an environment with high humidity. Occasional fertilisation supports its growth and vitality, but does not make 'Xantipa' a demanding inhabitant of the terrarium world.

In a terrarium, Neoregelia 'Xantipa' can not only serve as an aesthetic eye-catcher, but also contribute to the creation of a microclimatic ecosystem. Its brightly coloured leaf centres, which become even more intensely coloured during the flowering period, provide a spectacular display that contrasts sharply with the rather inconspicuous, whitish or bluish flowers. These flowers, although small, add an extra dimension to the already impressive appearance of the plant. Thanks to its adaptability and ability to store moisture in its leaf rosette, 'Xantipa' also provides shelter and drinking sources for the microfauna of the terrarium.
