Originating from the rainforests of the Amazon, Bromeliads prefer morning sun or bright indirect sunlight and thrive in moist, well-draining soil. These plants hold water in the crevaces between their leaves which in the wild, provides safe haven to frogs and insects which in turn fertilize the Bromeliad. Regular misting is recommended to prevent pest infestation and keep the edges of the leaves from browning. Fertilize no more than every 6 weeks in spring and summer with a thin layer of compost or a diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer. Although domesticated Bromeliads will only blossom once in their lifetime, the bright flowers often last for years. If given the right conditions Bromeliads will produce “pups” which can be separated from the mother and repotted.
