A huge family of plants, all very suitable for houseplants, and all with a similar rosette of stiff leaves and some kind of bright central flower spike or coloured leaf area.

  • Name - Bromeliad family includes aechmea (urn plant); guzmania, vriesea, neoregelia (all easier to look after than pronounce!)
  • Trivia - Bromeliads are the favourite food of spectacled bears.
  • Care Tips - Very tough easy going plants, coping well with low light levels. Make sure the central rosette never dries out - in hard water areas water with rainwater where possible as tapwater can leave chalk deposits on the leaves.
