The Bromeliad and other Flowering Plants
We can enjoy almost every aspect of flowering plants. Their fragrances and colors are stimulating to the senses. Many provide a food and medicinal supply.
Today we look at some wonderful flowering plants that make a beautiful gift for yourself or someone special anytime, and keep on giving for years.
The Bromeliad Plant
There are over 3000 species of the Bromeliad Plant, from the pineapple plant to succulent plants and even Spanish Moss. The Bromeliad only flowers once. Once your plant has grown all its leaves and is finished flowering it will start producing “babies”- called plantlets or offsets. The Mother plant will survive a couple generations then she will die off. The little plant babies grow out at the base of the plant and will feed off the Mother until it has grown its own roots and can then be replanted to thrive on its own.
If you are trying to get your Bromeliad to flower, place your Bromeliad and an apple in a plastic bag together for 10 days. The apple will produce ethylene gas while decomposing which is said to help with the blooming process. Be sure there is no water in the central cup before attempting this.
Brant Florist has one called the Bromeliad Beauty that is delivered in a brown bamboo cube..
