Bromeliad Plant Care Tips:

Maintenance: Easy

 

Sunlight
  1.  grow in the full range of light conditions from full sun to partial shade
  2. Fourteen to sixteen hours of fluorescent light a day will usually maintain leaf color.
Water  
  1. In the winter the frequency is every 4-5 weeks 
  2. in the summer every 3-4 weeks
Fertilizer 
  1. Good natural at-home-emergency fertilizer options for orchids are eggshells, potatoes, Epsom salt, etc… (Please refer to our DIY blog post on fertilizer).
  2. Fertilize plants using low-nitrogen 10-20-20 fertilizer, or use a balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer diluted to half strength. 
  3. Doesn't really need fertilizer
Bloom
  1. Blooms once
  2. A bromeliad must be mature to start developing pups, which normally happens shortly after the plant blooms. Most bromeliads mature in one to three years, depending on the variety and the plant's growing conditions, including temperature and humidity.
Temperature 

70-90°F for days

50-70°F for nights

Perfect!

The plants are beautiful, and were both expertly packed for shipping and easy to assemble. When I called with questions (these are my first plants ever), they were so helpful and warm. Highly recommend ordering plants from Essencia Air!
