Colorful and full of character, the "Blue Rain" Bromeliad Aechmea cannot go unnoticed in any setting. This care-easy plant has full, glossy foliage that radiates outwards from a central tank. Emerging from the rosette is a spike (or bract) with purple, white, pink endings that produce tiny, indiscreet flowers.
LIGHT: Bromeliad Aechmeas will thrive in moderate - low light. Leaves will turn yellow if they are getting too much light.
WATER: Your bromeliad is more likely to suffer from over-watering than under-watering. Bromeliads have a tank (the central well which the flower stalk arises out of) which is how they collect a lot of the water they need.
In an indoor environment, it is best not to let "old" water sit in the tank - this variety is particularly sensitive to stagnant water. Water your bromeliads twice a week by letting water run through the tank for a minute or two. Pour out any excess water. Mist leaves daily.
