N. scarlet charlotte has bright green leaves with the most gorgeous scarlet centre at maturity whereas N. medusa is spineless beauty with lovely formed rosette and intense colouring at flowering . A cross between these beauties and you have a lovely plant that deserves a place in any collection. Best in dappled light, with some morning sun to maximise the leaf colouring at flowering.
This beautiful plant grows in partial shade reaching to between 1 and 3 feet in height and spreading up to 2 feet. Therefore proving to be most suitable as house/office plant. The green leaves on plant are heavily banded with silver. It has the most stunning big pink pyramidal flower head with blue petals. The flower remains in colour for several months. We hope this cross to give thornless leaves since both parents has thornless leaves.
This is an unusually beautiful plant whose shiny green leaves with dark, hieroglyphic cross bands totally outshine its tall green flower spike bearing pale cream flowers. Given some 10 years, the rosette can spread to about 1.5 metres, earning it the common name of King of Bromeliads.
This large, sun tolerant ornamental bromeliad can grow to 1.2 metres high. The foliage can range from green, to orange to red depending on the clone, and will develop its best vibrant colours in sufficient sunlight. The large flower spike can reach 1.5m bearing long lasting masses of red and yellow flowers and purple berries. The orange and yellow varieties prefer full sun while the green variety prefers partial sun.
A classic cross between the considerably darker, burgundy variety with the dark burgundy-purple floral bract and the brighter, red variety with the red branching bract that could give either colour, or in some cases, a mix of colours. A beautiful specimen, either ways.
