Comments: Bromeliads are epiphytic plants that derives moisture and nutrients from the air and rain. The media on which they must be light, loose and well aerated. They generally do not flower for several years after the young plants are separated from the mother plant. The true flowers are relatively small and do not provide the significant color that one wants from bromeliads. Rather, the color is from the upper leaves of the plant, which are very colorful about the time the true flowers appear. Bromeliads of many kinds are grown in containers and as house plants.
