Bromeliads are small plants with extraordinary beauty, easy to raise. They generally use to grow above unstable situations (branches or stones). That’s why they get used to potted plant so quick. There are around 3.000 species of Bromeliads. Most of them are tropical. However, there are some plants that come from clod places. On Canarius, we offer some species with a small size and very rustic.
