Care Notes: Brighter, filtered sunlight will bring out more color in the foliage. If the humidity around your bromeliad is low, daily misting can help the plant thrive.  Stagnant water in the cup needs to be replaced regularly to avoid crown rot. 

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

Bromeliads are shipped bare root. Without pots or soil.
