picture of bromeliad with pink flower

These captivating plants have a diverse extended family. With over 3500 known species, there is a bromeliad to suit any style or condition in your home. Boasting an astonishing array of colours, shapes, sizes, and even air plants (epiphytes), these rainforest darlings bring cheerful serenity to any space.

As the plant reaches maturity (2-3 years), it sends forth a flower-like bloom that may last for several months. When this rosette begins to fade, marking the end of their life cycle, they grow baby bromeliads, called pups that can be gently separated to grow on in their own pots.  

 how this nature nurtures you 

Bromeliads are expert air purifiers. They do their best work at night, removing allergens, pollutants, and odours while releasing oxygen. A perfect sleeping buddy for your bedside. 

The variety and breadth of this plant family reminds us about the value of diversity, and their growth habit connects us to the cycles of life.
