Small BromeliadsBromeliads.
Bromeliads are excellent indoor plants. They have colorful, long-lasting inflorescenses and some have brilliantly colored foliage as well. Bromeliads also readily adapt to the unfavorable growing conditions that exist in most homes. Bromeliads can also be used in the outdoor landscape in frost-free areas or grown in containers that can be moved indoors in areas where freezes occur. Since bromeliads require minimal care, they are an asset to the landscape.
Plants that have adjusted to the arid and semi-arid regions of the world are known as cacti and succulents. Cacti are defined as members of one plant family and are considered separately, although they are actually succulents. The term Succulent encompasses all other fleshy plants, which stem from a variety of plant families. Succulents are any plant with fleshy, thick tissues adapted to water storage. Succulents are excellent houseplants, for they are both adaptable and durable. They are suited to a wide variation in temperature, and can even survive neglected watering.
Small TillandsiaTillandsias
Tillandsias, called by some the world's most unusual airplants, are a delightful addition to any home. They are easy to care for and exotic to look at. Tillandsias are air plants, even more so than other bromeliads and much like vandaceous orchids. They prefer light airy conditions and daily misting in areas of low humidity. They must be brought into protection from any freeze, but a light frost will not usually damage them. The greener and softer varieties like a little more water and shade. Any can be grown in your sunniest indoor area. Enjoy your Tillandsia plant for years of blooming and pupping with good light, fresh air, and adequate but not overabundant watering, particularly in cooler weather.
