Bromeliads are resilient, no-fuss plants with colorful foliage. Native to the tropical Americas, most bromeliads develop a flower stalk that rises from the center of the plant, but only blooms once in their lifetime.
Like bright, indirect light, but can also survive in lower light conditions, especially in the case of bromeliads with soft, flexible, spineless leaves.
Best kept at room temperatures between 60°F and 80°F.
These plants hold water in their center tank. Water by filling the tank and waiting until the tank is almost empty before watering again. Water minimally in cooler, darker months.
Bromeliads require little fertilizing. Occasionally you will want to use a water soluble fertilizer.
Cats love to chew on Bromeliad's crunchy leaves but the good news is that these plants are considered non-toxic. Bromeliads are air purifying.
