catalogue of Bromeliads used for various projects by - © Lloyd Godman
is a catalogue of bromeliads used by Lloyd godman for his various installations
and photosynthesis projects - the collection of pants he accessed in
New Zealand from 1996 - 2004 was collected from a wide range of sources,
while most were brought from Greens Bromeliads, some were also donated
by the Dunedin Botanical Gardens. Later in 2004 these plants were either
sold or given away with his move to Australia.
Lloyd is at present re-establishing his collection where he now lives

Genera - Neoregelia : Sub- family - Bromelioideae: Family - Bromeliad
Neoregelias are quite hardy, among the easiest of Bromeliads to grow, and generally form open rosettes that dramatically change colour in the centre or heart at flowering. As these colour changes are usually in the maroon, red range they create striking combinations with the green leaves. The flowers are quite small and just protrude above the reservoir of water retained in the centre of the plant often with the down folding of the petals creating a meniscus that keeps the water from reaching the centre of the flower. While they grow best in average to warm conditions, (13-30 degrees C, 55-85 degrees F), some of the stiffer leafed varieties will stand temperatures lower than freezing.
Plants are marked NZ for those collected in New Zealand - or Aust - for the new plants collected since coming to Australia
