Ships in 9" Pot. Plant Size: 42" x 24"

Portea 'Jungles'-Upright coppery burgundy foliage. Coral stems and purple berries.

Bromeliads have a tremendous will to survive and can offer infinite variety, challenge, and exciting plant forms and color combinations. The most common genera in cultivation are: Aechmea, Billbergia, Cryptanthus, Dyckia, Guzmania, Neoregelia, Nidularium, Tillandsia and Vriesea. All make good house plants if given a reasonable amount of care. The roots of most potted bromeliads like to be moist, but never soggy. Bright, diffused light is needed by most bromeliads. No bromeliad likes a dark environment. Bromeliads will be comfortable when you are. Generally, they prosper at temperatures between 50°F and 90°F. They are not winter hardy except in subtropical and tropical regions. In nature many bromeliads grow on trees as epiphytes or air plants. Their roots are used mainly for support; they are not parasites. Some bromeliads grow on rocks and cliff faces. They are remarkably versatile and form one of the most adaptable plant families in the world. Try Stokes Tropicals' Bromeliad Blend Fertilizer (10-14-14 with minors) for best results.
