I have a Bilbergia windii and I was wondering how one fertilizes bromiliads and with what. My plants have not put on the amazing show that they used to do.
I think I am brain dead tonight, got my forums mixed up. Any way, I was wondering about the fertilizing of the bilbergias.- Mara
I was chasing some similar information a while ago and stumbled across this old thread. I assume the information in the link attached remains current.
Here is a link that might be useful: Fertiliser Discussion Link
I attended a good discussion on fertilising Bills a little while ago, the grower displayed nice full pots of Bills in 4" pots. He split larger clumps into one or two plants and gave a heavy handfull of osmocote or similar to the mix which produced a nice full pot about a year later.
I have started this heavy handed approach which seems to have some merit.
Gonzer has also posted some nice Bill pictures using Cactus juice.
