Neoregelia pauciflora - New!
Neoregelia pauciflora is a very variable species (we have attached pictures to aid in the array you may receive if purchased). It is a small to medium-sized bromeliad that is perfect for a 10 to 20 gallon, 12x18 to 18x18x18 or 18x18x24 tanks. These can be used in 12x18 enclosures but they will take up a lot of room at maturity. This bromeliad is green with variable purple splotches, speckling, and color fills that can encompass the entire leaf. The leaves can be lanceolate and pointed or slightly wide. Color increases under high light. Your color may be duller than pictures due to growing in lower light conditions. Bromeliads are epiphytic and will send roots out in order to attach to other plants, rocks, or backgrounds. Bromeliads also hold water in their leaves, providing deposition sites for tadpoles. For this reason, we do not recommend planting this Bromeliad in the substrate; if they are watered from the bottom and top, the core can rot. Many dart frogs, especially Oophaga, rely on these plants (and film canisters in captivity) for breeding. Bromeliads form pups from the mature plant and will clump together. Please add fresh water to your bromeliads at least weekly, and allow them adequate ventilation. If you do not have ventilation, we do not recommend keeping them fully filled with water.
