Description

Neoregelia Cruentais a large bromeliad that grows in a rosette 3 ft (0.9 m) or more across. It usually grows as an epiphyte on large trees, but also survives on the ground. The leaves are thick and leathery, 3 ft (0.9 m) long and 2-3 in (5.1-7.6 cm) wide with spiny margins - reminiscent of some kind of agave. This is a variable species: Some plants have leaves that are yellowish green with red tips and red spines; some have red striped leaves; some have red cross bands; and others have leaves that are mostly red. The inflorescence consists of a short unbranched stalk with many small violet flowers. The flowers are inconspicuous and generally obscured by the leaves, but the leaves anticipate the occasion and turn brighter red near their bases just before the plant begins to produce its flowers. The plants can stay in bloom for 4-6 months, after which the main rosette dies, leaving behind offsets or "pups" around the outer margin.
