Bromelias flowers

.
Bromelia is the type genus of the botanical family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Bromelioideae. Bromelia species are widespread across much of Latin America and the West Indies, and are characterized by flowers with a deeply cleft calyx. The genus is named after the Swedish medical doctor and botanist Olof Bromelius (1639-1705).

The resistant fiber obtained from B. serra and B. hieronymi, both known as chaguar, is an essential component of the economy of the Wichí tribe in the semi-arid Gran Chaco region of Argentina. An 1841 publication described the fiber of silk grass (Bromelia karata) as "equal in durability to our best bowstrings.


Care
****

Bromeliads are strong and very easy to maintain. They will bring you great pleasure for an average of 3 – 6 months. Put your Bromeliad in a light place (not in full sun) and water it regularly (into the calyx of the plant) and it will be very happy. There is not need to add plant feed to the water.

If you would really like to spoil your Bromeliad on a very warm day, then salsa round it with a water spray, or put the outside pot in a bowl of water so that the water can slowly evaporate around the plant. In an indoor climate the Bromeliad takes it’s water and food from the air in exactly the same way as in the wild.

Has your Bromeliad finished flowering? Then it’s time for a new one as Bromeliads only flower once.
