Growing Bromeliad Indoor Tips
- Light - For the most part, bromeliads thrive in bright, sunny spaces. However, exposure to direct sunlight for an extended period of time can cause damage to the leaves.
- Water - Bromeliads are adapted to withstand drought, but are much less tolerant of being over-watered which can cause root rot. Each time you water the potting medium, thoroughly soak it so that the water runs from the drainage holes. This will remove any salt build up in the potting media. Don’t water the bromeliad again until at least the top two inches of potting media are dry. Any more often than this the plant will be sitting in too much water and could succumb to root rot.
- It is important to never use a metal container to water a bromeliad. Bromeliads are very sensitive to metal and the results could be devastating to your plant.
