Care For Abromeitiella Brevifolia

howdoesyourgrowDecember 10, 2009

Easy bromeliad - indirect/shaded/filtered sun (can stand some direct), warm copiously when it's warm, and feed it during the spring/summer/fall, or not, with diluted general-purpose fertilizer.

And in a few years, if the creek don't rise, your plant will look like the one in the link.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cushioned Brom

'Warm copiously' didn't ask about a pie, did you? I thought not.

That should have been 'water copiously'.

And for an extra bit of pedantry, it's properly written 'Abromeitiella brevifolia' - the genus is capitalized but the species is in lower-case.

Other than that, I learned this plant as Deuterocohnia.

Now that's the picture I was looking for - like the cap of a very large and somewhat green mushroom. TFS!
