As bromeliads are well adapted to indoors and outdoors, the plantation site is not a concern. One of the interesting facts is the center cup or vase like structure in non-epiphytic varieties. This cup, formed by a rosette of colorful, broad leaves, is used as a water storing adaptation in the natural habitat.
You can leave the top soil layer for drying between two watering sessions. In most cases, watering once or twice a week is sufficient.
Established plants respond well to light feeding in the active growing season and before blooming. During cold winter months, adding fertilizers is not at all necessary.
