Bromeliad Care

Known for dramatic flowerings, bromeliads are among the youngest plants to evolve on Earth…appearing just a mere 10 million years ago. Interesting.

  • Bright light is best. But not direct sunlight.
  • General rule of thumb: water well and allow to dry before watering again.
  • Many bromeliads have a “cup” in the center. This cup should have water. If empty, water the plant.
  • Flush out cup with fresh water periodically to prevent stagnant water.
  • If outdoors, do not leave water in cup if under 40 degrees.
  • If below freezing, cover thoroughly or bring inside.
  • Indoor plants may need misting on leaves every couple weeks in addition to watering.
