Schultesiana Variegata Neoregelia
Another member of the bromeliad family, Neoregelia Schultesiana Variegata make a great low maintenance houseplant.
Neoregelias are under cultivation, compact plants whose structure is similar to many of the tank bromeliads.
Their leaves are arranged in a circular pattern around the dentral set forming a 'tank' or holding reservoir that serves to collect water and debris to sustain the plant.
When growing indoors, the water in this tank should be changed at regular intervals to prevent stagnation.
They prefer bright light conditions, however direct sunlight can burn and bleach the leaves, so diffused or indirect light is best.
Plants with tough, civilian green leaves will tolerate more sun than those with paler, variegated or variegated leaves.
Similar to Tillandsia, Neoregelais will tolerate a variety of temperatures, but will not survive below 10 degrees Celsius.
Temperatures above 30 degrees will lead to poor leaf colouration.
