Tina loaned a bromeliad in a very unique planter to City Hall for the month of January.  She is pictured with Ray San Fratello.

New gardeners learning how to grow bromeliads will find that the plant doesn’t need deep pots or thick potting soils. They do even better in shallow pots and may grow in low soil mediums such as orchid mix, a blend of bark, and other organic amendments.

Water needs are easily met by filling the cup at the base of the leaves.
