DescriptionBromeliads are as easy to care for as houseplants can get. These low-maintenance indoor plants. They prefer high temperatures and humidity, but they are adaptable and can thrive in most home environments. Bromeliads flower once during their lifetime and generally decline a few months after they begin to bloom. However, it will focus its energy on propagating new plants after the plant flowers. Bromeliads can flourish in low, medium, or bright light, just as long as it is indirect. These indoor plants are known for their stunningly colorful leaves, so increase the amount of indirect sunlight to draw out the intensity of the colors.Water when the soil is dry. Bromeliads grow around a central cup. In nature, this cup works like a reservoir that collects rainwater that is then absorbed into the plant. When growing a bromeliad as a houseplant, it can be watered through the cup and never directly into the soil as this may cause root rot. Potting soil rich in nutrients and organic matter but still can drain well is the perfect growing medium for bromeliads. Most coco coir or peat-based potting soil mixes will be adequate but ensure they do not contain water-retentive crystals as they can cause the soil to stay moist, causing root rot continually. Bromeliads prefer warmer temperatures, although they are tolerant and can handle most home environments. The ideal temperature for a bromeliad is 55-80°f.Bromeliads naturally grow in the tropics and subtropics, so they like higher humidity. These plants are adaptable and can do very well in average humidity. Keep in mind that indoor plants will need more humidity as interior temperatures rise.Apply manure for first 15 days and npk for next 15 days.Bromeliads are slow-growing plants that only bloom once or twice in their lifetimes. Bromeliad guzmania may grow up to 2 feet tall and broad, depending on the kind. It might take one to three years for them to grow into blooming plants. The blooms are exceptionally long-lasting, lasting two to four months. They are also plants with a brief lifespan. The mother plant of most indoor bromeliads can survive for two to five years before dying, and most bromeliad types die after flowering. For landscaping contact
