Bromeliads are bold, stylish houseplants that work especially well in contemporary, modern, and tropical decor styles. Bromeliads have colorful, long-lasting blooms (which last for weeks) that contrast beautifully against the strappy green leaves. You'll typically see them flower in shades of pink, red, orange, and yellow. In addition to their exotic look, bromeliads also improve indoor air quality, helping clear air of indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde (which can be released by paint, gas-burning appliances, and clothing that has been dry cleaned). Bromeliads grow best in a medium- to bright-light spot with an abundance of humidity. Keep them moist, but not wet to ensure your bromeliads will thrive. Note: After the main flower on your bromeliad begins to fade, the mother plant will begin to decline. But you'll see baby bromeliads (called pups) developing around the base. Grow these out and enjoy more bromeliads!
