Hints and Tips

  • Growing and collecting Bromeliads is addictive and incurable
  • Air circulation around your Bromeliads is your best ally
  • Removing leaves is best done by splitting the leaf down the centre lengthwise and then pulling half to your left and half to your right.
  • Cut flower spikes off above the water line and at a 450 angle
  • To mount plants to a host, try thin strips of knitted shade cloth to tie them on or waterproof liquid nails.
  • Newly potted plants should be watered immediately after potting and with Seasol this limits the stress on the plant.
  • If a plant looks or smells like its rotting, tip water out of its cup and sprinkle some cinnamon powder into the cup.
