  • Reasons why we think Bromeliads are the coolest

    Bromeliads are not only incredible to look at, they are also super rad and really easy to care for. The extreme showiness of these specimens make people often assume them to be finicky, but they aren't! As a general rule of thumb, bromeliads will thrive in the same conditions as epiphytic orchids. However, they are considerably more tolerant than orchids as they are better equip to handle fluctuations in temperature, drought, and careless feeding. 

    There are thousands of species of plants in hundreds of genera in the plant family Bromeliaceae. It is not hard to find a unique one, specific to your needs and liking. Right now, we happen to have around 10 different kinds in our shop(s) and we just can not get enough of them! We think they are some of the coolest around.
