Bromeliad Care 101
Thrives in bright indirect light, but can tolerate a few hours of direct sun.
Water every 1–2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
Make sure the central cup of the plant has water within it at all times. This plant can benefit from extra humidity.
Bromeliads can be sensitive to hard tap water. Try using filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.
This plant is pet friendly!
Bromeliad blooms can last anywhere from 3–6 months. Cut back blooms after they are done so the plant can focus its energy on new growth.
