A happy bro-mance Grown horizontally or vertically, it’s easy to fall for bold and beautiful bromeliads
If you would like to go troppo and celebrate the vibrant and distinctive characteristics of tropical crops, then bromeliads exceed on both counts. First would be the magnificent flowers that emerge in the central rosette of the luxuriant leaves. Within their native South Americathey grow on stones and escarpments or in tree canopies. As lithophytes or epiphytes, the origins’ role is only to grip whatever they’re sitting on and they get water and nutrients from organic matter and rain that falls on their leaves. Recreate this rich extravagance in your own backyard, then see their amazing blooms emerge to get an exotic, tropical and lively garden feature.
Place low on the ground
Grab everyone’s eye with bromeliads in pots on balconies, in courtyards or your garden bed.
•The potting mix should be light and open. Its principal purpose is to encourage and contain the roots, not provide nourishment. Blend half all all-purpose mix and orchid mix.
•Do not plant too deeply or the roots will rot.
•Fertilise every 4-6 weeks during the late spring and summer, but not within the leaves as it could develop and burn new expansion. Flush the middle cup often to reduce stagnation.
“Select healthful plants with strong root systems and rigid leaves with with no signs of wilting.”
Hang them in the atmosphere
•Use youthful, little bromeliads. Massive ones are more difficult to attach and might drop off. Youthful plant roots will develop to support the weight as the plant develops.
•Select healthy plants with strong root systems and rigid leaves without any signs of wilting or brown edges.
•Place at the branch of a branch or in
A hollow of the tree’s back as it needs leverage while the roots grow and grip the bark. Do not cut to the origins or even the tree branch. Make sure the roots are sitting on bark.
•Tie firmly so it will not wave in a breeze or the roots won’t be able to make an attachment.
•If the roots are too little, add a few drops of non-silicone-based glue. It will not damage the plant and the roots grow around it until they are long enough to grip the bark and maintain the plant securely in place.
•Cover the roots with Spanish moss or peat moss to keep them moist.
•Spray water over leaves and in the plant foundation 2-3 times a week in hot weather and monthly .
