Hi everyone,

A few years back I purchased the plant pictured which I was led to believe was a species Neoregelia called fosteriana. Since then there have been a few different growers who have suggested that it may not be true to name, but can't offer any other name.

Any help in the way of advice or perhaps a picture of a true to name Neo. fosteriana would be appreciated

All the best, Nev.

Hey Nev ! I am glad I am not the only one with this problem! Same plant - no name! I've got it lables at "Neo Unknown"! Who is going to help? Normally better colour in a little shade, this one is growing in full sun and very stressed.

Hi Splinter,

Maybe N. pineliana or a plant that is unofficially labeled, N. Carolinae Long leaf here in SA?
