What is the plant
The blushing bromeliad is part of a large genus of bromeliads and has an interesting way of turning red at it's center when it's about to flower. The flowers are nothing to shout home about - it's the foliage and the center turning red that's the real attraction.
This native to Brazil bromeliad "from the neoreglia genus" is one of the most commonly grown species indoors from this genus, with the most popular variety being the tricolor. Like other bromeliads, in its' natural rainforest habitat it grows on trees (epiphyte) or among other species on the forest floor collecting water within the center cup (vase). The small roots primary purpose is to attach itself to it's growing location to support itself, which is why they live among trees and can be grown indoors on a home made bromeliad tree.
