Description

Neoregelia Ivory, an upright rosette of green and white leaves to 50 cm in diameter.  When grown in very bright light the foliage develops an intense pink colour.

A very popular choice for the garden.  An interesting characteristic of Neoregelia Ivory is the pups which are produced on long stolons.  These pups develop above the mother plant and if planted at the base of a tree stump, boulder or wall, the pups will create a very unusual staggered effect as they gradually grow upwards.

This plant multiplies readily and grows to form a very attractive, large clump in a relatively short space of time.

Tips for growing your plant successfully:

Light: Neoregelia Ivory is best grown in morning sun, avoiding the midday sun or in very bright indirect light. Under these conditions the foliage develops an intense pink colour. Neoregelia Ivory also grows well in shady spots, however the foliage will be green and white. Light is a very important factor to consider when growing Neoregelia as this in most cases affects the coloration of the foliage. Generally, plants with tough leathery leaves enjoy a lot of sun, while plants with softer leaves prefer partial or dappled shade.

Soil: Generally Bromeliads which grow terrestrially, require good drainage and like to grow in soil which is airy and fast draining. We recommend the addition of compost or fine bark to the planting area. When growing your plant in containers, it is also important to ensure that your soil is light, airy and free draining. A combination of a good quality potting soil with the addition of either coco peat, pine bark or perlite is recommended.

Watering: Many Bromeliads are surprisingly water wise. When watering, water your plant thoroughly, then allow to dry out before watering again. Always ensure that there is water in your Bromeliad’s tank, cup or reservoir. The frequency of watering will vary according to the season. Remember if you are unsure as to whether to water or not, rather keep the plant on a drier side as overwatering can lead to fungal problems which can kill a plant quickly.

Fertiliser: Use a balanced water soluble fertilizer at half the recommended strength once a month during spring and summer.

Temperature: Most Neoregelia hybrids can tolerate minimum winter temperatures of just above 0 degrees Celsius.

Please Note:

The plant is currently growing in a 15 cm plastic pot. It will be supplied bare root (without a pot or soil). Although our plants are grown under the same conditions and we carefully handpick your plant to ensure the best quality possible, no two plants are identical. Also the colours of plants can vary according to the season. The plant supplied will be similar to the plant photographed.
