    rambling story/pictures of neps, phal, broms, spider

    As usual, I went to go water my neps and prune away the dead leaves and such, and decided to dig up the bromeliad I had put in the yard because it smelled (water tank + dying flowers = GROSS) while it was making pups. Well, I did manage to get two pups off of it - one big and one that was...

    brom repotting mix?

    I have a Home Depot bromeliad that looks like it needs repotting because the black squishy stuff it's potted in is crumbly and coming out of the bottom of the pot. I've had it in the stuff it came in (in the pot) since I got it last year. I don't know what to repot in, but I do have copious...

    Orchid and bromeliad for trade

    Yep, I'm trading away an orchid and a bromeliad. I haven't the first clue about how to properly grow either one of them, as you may be able to see. The Orchid has produced nice leaves, but I managed to kill all the flowers. The bromeliad... *shrug*. House plants are not my thing. Unfortunately...

    so the tops part of my bromeliad is all dry and i decided to se how far the dryness went down, it's only about 1-2 cm from top. it is also making pups, so is it possible that it is slowly withering away, only to be replaced by the baby pups? the pups look amazing, and are about a foot tall now...

    I'm thinking of getting a carnivorous bromeliad (Brocchinia reducta). Is it a difficult plant? What are the basics for it? Also, can I grow this on my windowsill?

    Auction 6 - Neoregelia carolinae...Winner Jimmy for $8

    Up for auction is a Neoregelia carolinae. This is a colorful bromeliad when grown outdoors. It is an easy grower. This is a pup that I removed off my mother plant. It's starting to produce a pup of it's own as can be seen in the second picture. It's probably safe to say it's now rooted. It...
