Description

Neoregelia concentrica 'Albomarginata' is a stemless funnel bromeliad that occurs as an epiphyte in the humid, tropical regions of Brazil. The broad, yellow-white edged leaves and the often red to purple rosettes during the flowering season offer an extraordinary sight in the terrarium. The broad and elongated leaves with spiny tips are evergreen, grow to about 5 - 8 cm width and reach a length of about 15 - 35 cm. This impressive bromeliad forms a rosette, which in turn forms a funnel. The funnel collects water that enables the bromeliads to survive even longer dry periods in their natural habitat. 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 foul. Neoregelia concentrica 'Albomarginata' bears flowers that are sunken into the rosette and are lilac to pale blue when in flower.

Unlike many other bromeliads, the mother rosette does not die immediately after flower and pup 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 very attractive plant can grow to an extraordinary size of 70 - 90 cm in width under optimal conditions and given enough space, and looks particularly good in large terrariums.
