Beautiful Bromeliad!

My Neoregelia Tiger Cub arrived in great condition and rooted quickly in the 2.5 gal aquarium I repurposed as a vivarium for hatchling mourning geckos. It is growing rapidly and has a pup already! The baby geckos love to hide in it's beautiful leaves.

Cool stripes

Arrived healthy and beautiful. Small brom fits in nicely on a wood feature in my vivarium. One leaf did split a bit vertically a couple days after install but it’s otherwise doing great and growing.

Unique Plant with Perfect Name

Tiger Cub is a very great name for this Neoregelia. First it is covered in many stripes like a tiger. Second, it stays relatively small like a baby or “cub.” Name aside, it is a great plant that has adapted well to my tank and adds to the jungle feel.
