Neoregelia concentrica Purple Center is the supreme clone selected from wild plants, released some years ago from Bullis Bromeliads, in the USA. Leaves are wider and thicker, with dark concentrical markings. The center of the rosette turns bright purple when blooming. It grows to 40-50 cm in diameter.
This species is one of the cold-hardiest of all neoregelias. It withstands light frost. Leaves are very wide and thick, with unreal colours of greys, greens, browns and purples. It will develop the typical concentrical markings. Neoregelia concentrica is an exotic beauty from Brazil, it is very easy to grow. To produce the concentrical markings, it needs some direct sun on the rosette.
This bromeliad likes full sun, except in the hottest months, where it enjoys 40% shade or morning sun, to prevent sunburn. It can take frosts of about -5 C (23 F), but it is better kept above 6 C, for healthy, continuous growth. This bromeliad species is a classic of all times, hardly surpassed by any hybrid.
