Part of the Bromeliaceae family, Neoregelia 'Fire In The Hole' is a smaller type of the Neoregelia genus. It has albo-marginated lime green leaves which seems as if it was lightly spray painted at the centre of the rosette. The intensity of the red can depend on the environment. 'Fire In The Hole' is known for growing multiple long stolon with pups. Neoregelia 'Fire In The Hole', like most Neoregelia species, have multiple small flowers that form in the centre of the rosette. These plants are monocarpic which means they tend to flower once for an extended period of time after which they die off years later. Bromeliads have a cup like structure in the centre of the rosette where water can be added however ensure that the water is replaced weekly.

Very well-draining soil/bark mixture is of utmost importance. Water regularly but do not keep the soil waterlogged. It is a low maintenance plant and requires little feeding. It can be propagated easily by dividing the rhizomes or by rooting the offsets. It can tolerate medium to high humidity. This species can be mounted.
