Living plant of the month for November: Bromelia

A strong masculine plant, but also very colourful. A well-known plant from South and Central America by origin. We are talking about the houseplant Bromeliad, a real tropical surprise that complements any interior colour! Very suitable for this “grey and dull” autumn month, and therefore named as Houseplant of the month for November.

Easy temperament
The exotic bromeliad consists of a ‘funnel’ of leaves, therefore also known as the ‘funnel plant’. The leaves form a rosette around a funnel-shaped centre from which a flower spike emerges producing the most beautiful coloured bracts. You would imagine that a plant with such an exotic look would require lots of care and attention, but that is not the case. The bromeliad is a strong plant, which likes to stand in the light, but not in direct sunlight. Water regularly in the heart of the plant, keep the compost moist and that’s all there is to it! Adding plant food is not necessary. One other tip it does enjoy a mist spray to help with the humidity.

The ease of looking after this plant is probably due to the circumstances of its origin. In the rugged Andes mountains and the jungles of Uruguay it survived just fine. Sometimes there you could even find bromeliads growing on trees! They can be found throughout Central and South America, growing effortlessly in places where they are able to adapt to local circumstances.
