You have just bought a new, beautiful blooming Bromeliad. from your Garden Center, Florist; Nursery or Grocery Store, now what? First you want to find a decorative container for your new Bromeliad. Next, finding the right place in your home, office or lobby is a must to show off your Bromeliad for the fullest enjoyment, is a must. Do not put your new plant in the full sun, near a hot light bulb or next to a window that can act as a magnifying glass with the sun and burn your plant. Low to bright-defused light will be just fine.

After your Bromeliad has found the perfect spot, next comes the care of your plant. The BIGGEST mistake is over watering your new plant! ! ! Remember, when your plant is in a container where water can sit and not drain, your Bromeliad can rot! Put a half-cup of water in the center of the plant known as the “cup" of the Bromeliad. Next, water the mix where the plant is in with another half-cup of water. When the mix dries out, then, and only then add another half-cup of water. In most cases, watering is only once a week, but you need to determine the exact watering cycle in your situation by checking your plant symptoms. A "'rolled" leaf indicates too little water and you need to get a lot of water fast to the .'cup" of the plant.. Likewise, when the center of the “cup” dries out, add another half-cup of water .Your Bromeliad will love a misting all over from a quart sprayer once or twice a week. Good air movement by your plant prolongs it's life and health.
