A small blooming bromeliad has joined my potted plants adding a splash of color to my Winter indoor greenery
here is my new baby
and some other views
Bromeliads are tropical plants that hold water in the central cup where the flower eventually rises. If I am not mistaken, once the bloom fades the plants has to go dormant, then it dies off while it generates side babies. It is rather like the swan song of plants! I’ll have to go and read about it to learn how to manage this little treasure … I find it rather difficult at home to reproduce the environment of a tropical forest. Any suggestions from die-hard home-plants lovers?
