Q.Bromeliad Care

Zone Jacksonville, Florida | NotAGardner added on April 4, 2020 | Answered

First, I do not have a green thumb – on a scale of greenness, it is BLACK! I am that person that needs ‘gardening for dummies’! With that said, last year I was given 3 Bromeliad potted plants and told to water them and keep them in the shade. I live in North Florida, It’s hot and I do not have much shade in my front or back yard. Well, needless to say – my 3 plants somehow survived my lack of plant skills and now that I am quarantined in my house, I’m ready to revive them. They are a little sunburned with the tips of their leaves browning – there is still plenty green. I really want the pretty plant back, I just have no clue how to make that happen. I’ve had people tell me about fertilizer and replanting and trimming – but no one is telling me as if I am that second grade student! Can you rescue me please! I will attach a photo of one of the plants, and all three look very similar. First, what steps to take to get them pretty again, 2) inside or outside? Fertilizer? Soil? Watering them … etc. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
