Neoregelia carcharodon ‘Tiger’

$20.00 Out of Stock

This plant has become a superstar since its limited introduction a few years ago, finding a ready market at high prices at bromeliad conventions and shows. Now commonly used as a hardy landscape plant, it’s is a spectacular, large-growing plant with heavy reddish-brown bars across light green leaves. Large marginal spines line the wide, stiff leaves. A superior plant for hybridizing, Hanibal Lector being an example. It should be noted that this plant has no official botanical status. It was brought into cultivation by Chester Skotak after having found it in a Brazilian collection. Lacking a better description for now, it is being referred to as carcharodon cv. ‘Tiger’. The ‘real’ carcharodon is unknown and many not be in cultivation at all.
