Orange Bromeliad

Few people know it, but Bromeliads in the same family as pineapples. The plant itself has a "crown" similar to that of a pineapple, and comes in a variety of bright tropical colors.

Bromeliads were seen as a 'gift from the gods' by the Incas, Aztecs and Mayans who used nearly every part of the plant for various utilities. When placed in the home, it is said to represent 'protection.' The Bromeliad plant is a wonderful indoor option because it requires no special tools or fertilizers to bloom into a bold and vibrant plant that will transport you somewhere tropical.

Water: Water your Bromeliad when the soil is dry and avoid over saturating the water to prevent root rot.

Fertilizer: Bromeliads do not require fertilizer to thrive, but their color can be enhanced through the use of fertilizer. You can feed your Bromeliad a half strength fertilizer every month in the growing season.
