Plant care

The Neoregelia ampullacea is the kind of plant that can easily be kept at home or in the office. Place it in a light spot or in half shadow. Water the Neoregelia ampullacea sufficiently, so the soil will always be slightly moist. Allow surplus water to drain from the bottom of the container, so there is not constantly water close to the roots of the Neoregelia ampullacea. This exotic bromelia cannot stand frost, but will thrive on standard house and office temperatures and on the prevalent temperature in tropical terraria.
