Neoregelia Fireball is a smaller and easy-care Bromeliad with bright fiery red colour. The fireball is a wonderful plant to add to your garden for a bright display of colour. They bring a tropical feel to the garden and are great for mass planting or even to grow on a tree as an epiphyte. Their leaves form a central water holding vase that collects water and decaying matter for their nutritional needs. 

Light requirement: Full Sun and Part sun/part shade

Water requirement: Medium

Watering frequency: Let the potting mix nearly dry out before watering but ensure the 'central vase' is always topped up with water. If grown indoors, replace this water at least once a month to ensure it does not rot.

More info: (1) During the growing period, add a very weak solution of liquid fertilizer into the central vase. Annual slow-release fertilizer in the potting mix.
