How often do bromeliads need water?
Due to attributes like the aforementioned trichomes, many bromeliads are among the more drought-tolerant houseplants and dislike being over-watered. You can keep them healthy by watering the soil every one to two weeks in the warmer months, and every two to three weeks in the colder months.
How do you know when a bromeliad needs water?
Feel the soil: the top layer (about 1 inch) should be dry before giving your Bromeliad plant more water. You should also check the rosette/center of the plant, it should always have at least a little water in it. If the soil is wet – snooze this action, we will remind you again in 2 days.
What does a dying bromeliad look like?
The flower is turning brown, wilting and looks like it will die. Spots are okay, but it’s time to take action when leaves turn brown. Unfortunately, the death of a bromeliad flower is inevitable. Most bromeliads, with the exclusion of a few species such as those in the genera Dyckia, flower only once.
