Neoregilia plant Care and Instruction
Neoregelia plants are not difficult bromeliads to grow, but they are somewhat more dependent on strong light to develop deep, vivid colors in their leaves than others. They can even withstand some gentle, direct sunlight, such as eastern morning exposure. As with other bromeliads, avoid tap water in the central cup if possible and don’t overfeed them. Provide ample humidity during the summer growing season by misting. Use any soil mix. These are technically air plants that use their roots for support.
Light – These plants thrive in indirect light or moderate shade. They can be acclimated to higher light levels.
Place – Indoors Or Outdoors
Water – Keep water in the central cup. Change the water frequently with clean water to prevent odor and bacteria.
Fertilizer – Fertilize very sparingly with a liquid fertilizer in the central cup during the growing season.
Temperature – These plants are somewhat more cold-hardy than many tropicals, but they prefer 55 F or higher. They can survive to 40 F if you have taken them outside for the summer and there’s a cold dip in nighttime temperatures, but it’s not advised.
