Neoregelia 'Fireball' - is a dwarf bromeliad that can produce a cluster of very small blue inflorescences. This plant does well in full sun to partial sun. The very skinny dark burgundy leaves provide great cascading effects from hanging positions, as the light strikes and filters through the almost transparent leaves. In sun, the leaves remain a bright red. In shade, they will revert to green It can be brought inside during the winter. It can grow either attached to a tree branch, planted in the ground, pot or hanging basket. It is important to give it some room to cluster

Neoreglia 'Fireball' is a bromeliad. Bromeliads have a tremendous will to survive and can offer infinite variety, challenge, and exciting plant forms and color combinations. The most common genera in cultivation are: Aechmea, Billbergia, Cryptanthus, Dyckia, Guzmania, Neoregelia, Nidularium, Tillandsia and Vriesea. All make good house plants if given a reasonable amount of care. The roots of most potted bromeliads like to be moist, but never soggy. Bright, diffused light is needed by most bromeliads. No bromeliad likes a dark environment. Bromeliads will be comfortable when you are. That is, they prosper at temperatures between 50 degrees F and 90 degrees F. They are not winter hardy except in subtropical and tropical regions. In nature, many bromeliads grow on trees as epiphytes or air plants. Their roots are used mainly for support; the plants are not parasites. Some bromeliads grow on rocks and cliff faces. They are remarkably versatile and form one of the most adaptable plant families in the world.
