How do you take care of a Bromelia?

The best location

The Bromelia is a real sun worshipper. Although she especially enjoys the sun when she can see a little from a distance. It is therefore best to offer the Bromelia a pitch with indirect sunlight. That’ll make her happy! At least, if you put her near a window with lots of light. If the Bromelia gets too much light, you will soon notice this. The leaves will burn and you will see that the plant dries out. In addition, the fruit wilts and the colour of the Bromelia fades. Signs you can’t let pass!

Watering the Bromelia

It is best to give the Bromelia a sip of water once a week. This way you always keep the soil of the plant slightly moist. Something the Bromelia really enjoys. In order not to damage the plant, it is best to water the Bromelia with its fruit or flower. This is also called the heart of the plant. Give the Bromelia small amounts of water. As soon as you give too much water, the fruit of the plant can be damaged. Too much water can also prevent the Bromelia from absorbing everything. This can cause the plant to suffer from root rot, which can be quite difficult to combat.

Plant nutrition

Bromeliads such as the Pineapple plant have a relatively short lifespan. This is because once the fruit has grown the plant will die. In these cases, plant nutrition is therefore not a requirement. Although we do recommend that Bromeliads with a longer lifespan be provided with extra power. If you are going to give plant food, we advise you to give plant food especially for flowering houseplants. Attention! It is important to only give extra food from spring to the end of summer. As soon as you feed plants all year round, the Bromelia will be damaged. The plant then gets too much extra nutrition, which it can’t do anything with at all.

Repotting

Repotting the Bromelia is only necessary if it is a species with a longer lifespan. Most Bromelia die as soon as their fruit has finished flowering. Then, of course, repotting is not necessary. Does your Bromelia have a longer lifespan? Then it’s best to repot every year. Despite the fact that the Bromelia does not grow out of its flowerpot quickly, repotting can provide new energy. Energy that the plant needs, for example, to grow its fruits.

Air purifying function

Bromeliads are usually small, but that doesn’t stop them from purifying the air. On the contrary! Especially the Pineapple plant is a good air purifier. The Bromelia extracts harmful substances from the air and converts CO2 into oxygen. Although most plants carry out this process during the day, the pineapple plant does so during the day. The pineapple plant provides extra oxygen while you sleep, which could reduce snoring.

Is the Bromelia poisonous?

The Bromelia is fortunately non-toxic. Although a plant is non-toxic, it can be dangerous for children and pets. Do you see that the Bromelia has been eaten? Please contact a house vet or veterinarian immediately. Keep a close eye on your child’s or pet’s behaviour.

Diseases and peculiarities

Unfortunately, the Bromelia is sensitive to spider mites. Spider mites are mites that nest on plants. They mainly occur when the Bromelia is in a room with dry conditions. To prevent this, it is best to spray the Bromelia regularly with a plant sprayer. You can also spray the plant preventively with pesticide.
