Low maintenance, medium to light water needs.Grow 'Fireball' in a sandy or gritty soil supplemented with sphagnum moss. It can also be mounted onto a tree branch or grown in a container filled with bark nuggets or coarse compost. Keep leaf bases filled with water, especially if plants are exposed to direct sun rays.
Nregelia Fireball is an easily grown, epiphytic Bromeliad. Foliage takes on a deep red hue when grown in full sun. Small blue flowers appear in the center of mature rosettes. A single plant will quickly form a spectacular cluster of multiple rosettes by a liberal production of stolons (or runners).
The small rosette of this bromeliad comprises a radial bouquet of concave, sword-like leaves without spines. In the center of the rosette is a water-holding cup. In spring or early summer, mature specimens form pincushion-like flower structures in the center that are partially submerged with water in the rosette cup. Tiny white to lavender blossoms reach just above the water line.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
Bromeliads required medium to bright light. They are happy in a shaded area or with filtered light as well. Make sure not to expose bromeliads to harsh afternoon sun as their leaves are a little delicate and tend to get burns.
Bromeliads do well in shallow pots and moist soil. Make sure not to over water your bromeliad as it can lead to root rot. A drainage hole in your pot will go a long way to ensure drainage of excess water from the pot.
