  • The Bromeliad fasciata AKA: Silver Vase Plant. ⁠I love this plant because it is so different than all of my other plants. ⁠⠀
  • They get their nickname because their leaves have a patterned powder on them that makes them appear “silver.” ⁠⠀
  • Bromeliads have unique leaves that grow in a circular fashion so that they form a “cup” in the center as they grow.⁠ The central “cup” collects the water for the plant and as the plant matures it will produce a tall flower stalk with pink bracts. ⁠⠀
  • The real flowers are tiny blue blooms that grow between the pink bracts. Although the blue flowers die quickly, the bright pink bracts often last 5 or 6 months. ⁠⠀
  • ⁠They require very bright light in order to flower. I use a plant light to supplement the limited sunlight during the winter and fall.⁠⠀
  • Once the pink bracts (flower looking things) appear you will want to move the plant to lower light to prolong the colorful bracts.⁠⠀
  • Fun Fact! Bromeliads remove formaldehyde from the air.⁠⠀
