Bromeliad neoregelia 'Medusa'
Common names: Medusa, Medusa's Head, Octopus Plant
Bromeliads are a fun family that includes pineapples, air plants, and a variety of other plants that may be less familiar. What they have in common is striking leaf colors and patterns, and very frequently a one-time bloom (which may last several months) that emerges from the center of the leaf cluster! Bromeliads are most likely to bloom if they are kept in a humid environment, and you won't regret the extra effort to give them that because these blooms are technicolor! Medusa is unique with a deep red center and long, emerald green leaves that wave and twist like the snakes of Medusa's hair.
Pet Friendly: Yes
Care: Bromeliads all have a 'cup' at the center of their leaves. This cup wants to hold water at all times, so make sure to not let it dry out! You can water the soil more occasionally.
