This is one of my first Neos. It's really nice!
I leave mine in bright shade during the summer, and it colors up nicely. Indoors, it will lose some of its color. Still doing well after 2 months of being inside with no care except watering the central cup once/ week. I never fertilize my bromeliads; I just put a few small leaves in its central cup. These are plants for lazy people (:
