    Neoregelia is a bromeliad family with spectacular coloured shoot tip. As typical for bromeliads, the plant prefers humid and warm environment – in nature they capture most of the water they need from mist accumulated at the leaf base. As a consequence, neoregelia adores regular spraying, so in this respect it is a perfect match to moss. It does not need regular bathing, by-weekly bathing will be enough. After blossoming (it may take months) the plant will start slowly decaying, but only to allow energy flowing to the then emerging sprouts.

    Light demand: it prefers a bright location, but no direct sun is needed. 

    Temperature: just think of the climate in tropical rainforests: it brings no flower below 24 o C, and if kept for longer period below 10 o C it will give up. 

    Water demand: Neoregelias do not need frequent watering, the soil of kokedama may even get dry time-to-time, but no root can tolerate well a bone-dry soil. Nevertheless, neoregelia is crazy for humidity, its ideal environment is rather a warm bathroom or kitchen with relatively good light, at least in our climate. Make sure to regularly spray the plant, try to always keep some volume of water at the leaf base. Plant pros can use softened water or rainwater for watering – but we also use simple tap water in most cases and no problem happens. 

    Fertilising: give the plant nutrients rarely and in very small dose, or just don't fertilise.
