Care

General Maintenance: These plants do not have a large root system and will not often require repotting. Bromeliads will produce pups that grow on the side of the mother plant, which can be cut off and propagated. 

Temperature: Ideal temperatures are between 15° - 27° Celsius. 

Light: Bright, indirect light is the best for bringing out the vibrant colours of your bromeliad. An east or west facing window works well, but southern light will work fine as well. Direct sun will scorch this plants foliage. 

Watering: Water your bromeliad by filling up the cup/urn in the center of the plant. Keep this urn filled about 1/4 of the way with water, and water less in the winter. You can allow the urn to remain dry for 2-7 days depending on the amount of light and temperature in your home. If you have low light and cool temps let your plant remain dry for a few more days and do not overwater as that may cause it to rot. These plants will tolerate the humidity of the average home, but will enjoy a bit of misting once every 1-2 weeks. 

Soil: These plants require very good drainage. Utilize an orchid mix and potentially mix bark or something similar into your soil to increase the drainage. 

Fertilizer: These plants do not require fertilizer, but if you choose to fertilize you should only need to do it once or twice during spring and summer. A liquid orchid food diluted to about 1/2 strength works well, and can be sprayed gently onto the foliage and also used to moisten the top 1/2 inch of the soil.
