As the summer draws to an end we all head indoors again. But that’s no reason to be despondent. Really. Add an exotic touch to your living room to remember the long summer evenings for a few more weeks. The family of the Bromeliads is a very large, South American family with different varieties. Combine several shapes and colours for a playful mix. The most eye-catching members of the Bromeliad family are Ananas, Aechmea, Guzmania, Tillandsia and Vriesea.
They each have their own specific coloured bracts, which give the plant an exotic look and feel. The distinctive shapes and colours are different for every variety. From a cream-coloured rosette to leaves that are tinged purple at the tips and from a pink flower spike to a bright yellow spear. Do you find the names difficult to remember? Don’t worry! At your nursery or your florist you see the Bromeliads up close and pick your favourite.
Here you will find out how you can pamper your Bromeliad. Good news for those of you who aren’t blessed with green fingers: the Bromeliad is practically care free!
