Bromeliads

Bromeliads are members of a plant family called Bromeliaceae. The family contains over 3000 described species in approximately 56 genera plus thousands of hybrids. The most well known bromeliad is the pineapple. Plants are widely represented in their natural climates across the Americas. They can be found at altitudes from sea level to 4200 meters, from rainforests to deserts. Approximately half the species are epiphytes, some are lithophytes, and some are terrestrial. Accordingly, these plants can be found in the Andean highlands, from northern Chile to Colombia, in the Sechura Desert of coastal Peru, in the cloud forests of Central and South America, in southern United States from southern Virginia to Florida to Texas, and in far southern Arizona.

In general, they are easy to grow, require little care and reward the grower with brilliant  blooms and spectacular ornamental foliage. They come in a wide range of sizes from tiny miniatures to giants. They can be grown indoors in cooler climates and can also be used outdoors where temperatures stay above freezing. 

Bromeliads have enjoyed a worldwide surge of popularity during the last 3 decades. For some, the thrill of acquiring new plants for their collection has never been as huge and exciting as it is today, not to mention social media is exploding with bromeliad fans. With such diverse variety, the subject of Bromeliads is extensive and the fun part is you never stop learning. Bromeliads... the most interesting plants in the world!

    Neoregelia 'Joao Marcio' is a very handsome looking plant with bold burgundy bands on kiwi green leaves. The leaf colors intensify in strong light, achieving more yellow and bolder, darker brown bands which are almost solid at the base of the plant. Neo Juao Marcio is a terrarium favorite known for the unique shape and color as well as water-holding leaves which are important for poison dart frog tanks. Neoregelia Juao Marcio looks best when grown in bright light with some partial shade throughout the day and can be acclimated to grow in full sun. Growing this plant in full sun will make the leaves turn a vivid yellow color which is quite normal. Try growing this miniature bromeliad in a hanging pot and you will have a nice basket of multiples in a few seasons.
