Part of the Bromeliaceae family, Neoregelia pauciflora is a miniature type of the Neoregelia Genus and is native to Brazil. It has green foliage with silver bands and dark purple spots over the whole plant. Neoregelia pauciflora is known for growing multiple long stolon’s with pups. Pups can be left on the mother plant giving it an awesome look or it can be cut of and replanted. Pups should not be cut off unless they are half the size of the mother plant. Neoregelia pauciflora, 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. Ensure that the water is replaced weekly.
Very well-draining soil/bark mix 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 tolerate medium to high humidity and temperatures as low as 0°C. This species can be mounted to vertical surfaces.
