Mildly burnt bromeliads

tamela_star(Zone 7)July 24, 2013

I have all of my bromeliads out for the summer. They have gotten sunburned over time, but are still doing well. The other day they turned from a dark shade of green to a bright green. I'm not sure if that's good for the silver vase considering I've never seen them in that color. They only get morning sun, and afternoon shade. Should I just bring them in since they're responding in that way? The earth star is doing fine. I'll post some pictures of them soon

Morning sun should not be a problem. As long as their colors are getting brighter its ok . When they start to wash out or turn white it is getting burned.

Thank you. I wasn't sure if it was normal because my silver vases were a deep dark green and now they are lime green.

They will also turn green with to much fertilizer
