NEOREGELIA ‘Red Waif’ Hendrix, G., (Johnson, C.*) 1979

(Hendrix Grex #7902) - Johnson says, "Small plant w/stoloniferous branching like 'Fireball' - smaller than 'Fireball' in dark red w/ampullacea spotting..only plant selected from the grex..blooms too soon resulting in many pups, but also many spent plants. Probably identical to 'Cayenne'. There is also a 'Little Waif' in circulation that appears to be a smaller version of 'Red Waif' but what is the norm for 'Red Waif'?

Seed Parent: 'Zebrina' Pollen Parent: 'Fireball'
