Indoor Plants – Bromeliads
Bromeliads are easy to grow, low maintenance indoor plants. They will grow in most light conditions, but to get the best out of your bromeliad, place your plant in a well lit area – not in direct sunlight. Bromeliads love humidity – they enjoy a good misting every few days. Be sure to keep them away from air conditioners and heaters.
Water once a week in the cup of the plant. DO NOT fertilize regularly. Fertilize once every 6 months with a diluted mixture of fertilizer.
Make sure you have adequate drainage. Use orchid potting mix when planting your bromeliad. If you don’t have orchid mix, you can use standard potting soil with a top layer (at least 5cm) of bark chips. Plants are likely to rot if you do not have adequate drainage.
You may order your bromeliad already planted in a 20cm nursery pot in one of our 22cm pot liners. The pot liners do not have drainage holes. This allows you to place your bromeliad anywhere in your home. The nursery pot is seated half way into the pot liner. This helps to prevent too much moisture around the plant. If you accidentally over water, you can remove the pot from the pot liner and empty out the excess water.
