    Question Neoregelia Leaf Tips Browning?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi! I got my Neoregelia 'Donger' bromeliad last Wednesday from Josh's Frogs and so far it has been doing well, but today I noticed light brown spots on the leaves and that the leaf tips and edges are turning brown and dry. I'm not sure if it's lighting or watering issues. It's in a crested gecko bioactive. Humidity stays between 60-70% normally. I mist the tank regularly and I make sure to keep the cup full with half tap half distilled water. It is technically under the UV bulb but it is well shaded by the other plants in the tank. It is mounted in well draining cork and the stolon is wrapped in sphagnum moss that I keep moist but not wet. My last bromeliad died on me and I don't want this one to go either. Help?

    Hello,
    it could be that it has not acclimated fully yet.
    And i would try removing the sphagnum moss from its roots. some
    Epiphytes plants need good air circulation becuse of their way of growing.

    Good luck with you`re bromeliad
    Thanks ahouseofscales thanked for this post
