Love this bromeliad!

Got a neoregelia a few weeks ago and it's doing great! It quickly took to the spot I had in mind for it and it makes for a great background plant. My one minor complaint is that the plant is mostly green with hardly any red, but I know color isn't guaranteed and I'm sure they'll become more pronounced over time. Overall, definitely get this if you want a bromeliad.

Neoregelia 'Fireball'

I saw these were back in stock, and on sale and had to grab two more. The color is bright, and breaks up all that green in my vivariums and makes it overall more beautiful to look at. They shipped fast, were packaged well, arrived in wonderful condition, and have already been mounted to a nice y-shaped piece of cork bark tubing. You can't pick a better place to get plants for vivs than here.
