xNeophytum is a bi-generic cross between Bromeliad genus Neoregelia and genus Orthophytum. In other words, Neoregelia is the parent plant and Orthophytum is the pollen plant. Most have long thin leaves that take on bright coloration in sunlight and the bloom is very low in the cup. xNeophytum should be grown like an Orthophytum in moist but well-drained soil in a moderately sunny location. Some can take full sun but need to be slowly acclimated. Water often in spring and summer, keep drier in winter and avoid frost.
