How to Grow Blushing Bromeliad Indoor

Bromeliads are not only beautiful, but also low-maintenance. With just a little bit of care, you can keep a bromeliad happy and healthy indoors. Here are some tips on how to grow a blushing bromeliad indoors.

Bromeliad is an easy going plant and makes an excellent houseplant or addition to your office. It looks lovely in a pot on a windowsill, table, or hung from a basket. Bromeliad comes in variety of colors and shapes. Some common varieties are:

-Aechmea -Billbergia -Guzmania -Nidularium -Vriesea Bromeliads are not demanding when it comes to fertilizer. Use a standard household fertilizer such as 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 at half the recommended strength once every other month during the growing season.

Bromeliads are not heavy feeders, so you don’t need to worry about giving them too much fertilizer. In fact, it’s better to err on the side of under-fertilizing, especially when it comes to young plants. Too much fertilizer can damage bromeliad roots and lead to plant problems later on.

Bromeliads grow best in well-drained pots filled with a quality potting mix formulated for epiphytic plants. If you can’t find a pre-made mix, you can make your own by mixing together 2 parts sphagnum peat moss, 2 parts coarse sand or perlite, and 1 part bark chips or charcoal.

When it comes to watering bromeliads, the key is to keep the potting mix evenly moist but not soggy wet. Watering requirements will vary depending on the type of bromeliad, the size of the plant, and the potting mix being used. As a general guide, water once every 7-10 days during the growing season and every 14 days during the winter months.

Bromeliad Light Requirements Like all plants, bromeliads have specific light requirements that, if not met, will result in poor growth or even death. While some bromeliads can tolerate low light conditions, most require bright, filtered light to thrive.
