Purple Passion Bromeliad

Neoregelia Onyxia (Hybrid)

  • ​Family name: Bromeliaceae
  • Origin: Florida
  • Mature Dimensions:  Height 12-18” – Width: 12-18”
  • Zone: 10a – 12
  • Tough bromeliad that copes with colder (and hotter) conditions.  Grown mainly for the foliage, Neoregelia’s have attractive color and markings, having a “tank” to hold water in the foliage.  It is recommended to fill the “tank” every week during dry season.  Protection from hot direct sun is important as to keep the foliage from being burnt.  Fertilizing is recommended in small amounts, using diluted liquid seaweed fertilizer every 6 months, usually spring and autumn.
