Bromeliads require bright light to bloom which is difficult to accomplish indoors. Bromeliads do well in most conditions indoors.
This epiphyte likes a well-drained, all-purpose potting soil with added bark and perlite. Consider mixing 1 part orchid mix with 1 part potting soil for best results.
In nature, Bromeliads naturally collect water by way of cupped leaves. Water the soil rather than the leaves as this can cause root rot.
Fertilize every one to two months with a half-strength, all purpose fertilizer.
tips and troubleshooting
The bracts (a modified leaf that looks like a flower) of bromeliads can be enjoyed for months. Often, tiny pink or purple flowers appear between bracts. Bromeliads are propagated by the pups they produce.
