Care info

Sun: Bromeliads prefer medium-to-bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight.

Water: Bromeliads absorb water through the air around them and are sensitive to being overwatered. Water your Bromeliad by:

• Water through the "vase", where the leaves meet in the center. Fill the vase every 1-2 weeks during summer and every 2-3 weeks during winter. Remove stagnant water after 4 days.
• Water the soil after the top 3 inches have dried, or
• Mist generously around the central vase and topsoil 1-3 times per week.
Tip: Rainwater or distilled water is best.

Air: Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. You can provide a regular boost of humidity by:

• Adding a humidifier nearby
• Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
• Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water
• Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

Bromeliads are safe for pets.

What Health Benefits Does This Plant Provide?

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 

• Lower stress levels

•Improved mood

• Superior mental clarity and focus

Houseplants are excellent air purifiers. They cleanse the air of indoor toxins, produce oxygen, and their humidifying capabilities will help you sleep + breathe better. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis and oxygen production.

Plant Lifecycle

Bromeliad plants have a unique life cycle that "ends" shortly after their bloom dies. It can take 5+ years to bloom and the flower (called a bract) lives for up to 6 months. After the bloom dies, the main plant will begin to decay and sprout "pups" in the soil.

The pups can be pruned away with a clean, sharp knife and planted in a moist medium of coco coir, moss, and/or orchid bark to start the life cycle over as a new plant.
