    Bicolored and multicolored flower spikes are very common. Many hybrids have been produced and these cultivars are vastly superior in color and ease of culture to most of the wild species. One of the advantages of this colorful bromeliads is they keep their color longer than the inflorescense.   Bromeliad size, shape, flower formation and color are as diverse as the many species, with some types growing only 1 inch tall to those towering up .

    A pup is the offset of another bromeliad plant. Pups can form at anytime but this most often occurs after your bromeliad has bloomed. Once a mature bromeliad reaches the point where it has a healthy bloom and a strong core, the original plant (known as the mother) will stop producing leaves and will begin producing its next generation of plants. Even commercial growers such as Tropiflora of Sarasota and Tropical World of Boynton Beach (two of my favorites) still use shade cloth over their stock of "full sun" bromeliads. The color's and forms are still superb, I assure you.

    Each bromeliad plant blooms only once but the flower spikes last three to six months. Epiphytic, or air grown, bromeliads receive their nutrient supply from air and water and do not need soil to grow. Granted these aren’t the most welcoming environments for plants which are native to the subtropics and tropics, but in all cases, the bromeliads certainly held their own. They were sold as “color plants” and certainly were a lot more long lasting and much more forgiving .
