xNEOMEA ‘Santa Marta’ ? / Cathcart D* ?

A plant from Franz Gruber allegedly collected in the Santa Marta Mountains in Colombia There is suspicion that this plant really originated in a nursery in Colombia which is why it was called a bigeneric. However, it has not been examined in detail and could well be an Aechmea with no direct links to Neoregelia. There is a variegated form- in cultivation---see x Neomea 'Santa Marta Marginated'. Reg. Doc. 2/2002.
