Gardening Guide Bromeliads River2u.com
Overview
Bromeliads are increasingly popular as house plants for the winter holiday season because of their brilliant, long lasting blooms and interesting foliage. Bromeliads come in a wide range of sizes and are inexpensive and easy to grow. They are wonderful houseplants and can be grown outdoors when there is no danger of freezing temperatures. Bromeliads make great gifts.

The following should be considered when buying bromeliads:
  • Make sure you know how much light the type of bromeliad needs. Plant types with soft, flexible leaves like less light than the bright, filtered light required by those bromeliads with stiff, spiky leaves.
  • Water bromeliads properly. Soil should be kept evenly moist. Tank bromeliads should always have some water in the central cup.
  • Consider the location. If the plant is too near a heating or air conditioning vent, it may be too hot or cold.
Watering with distilled water or rainwater can keep the leaf tips of bromeliads from turning brown.
