Bromeliaceae is a large family of herbaceous plants native to the Americas. Just like many orchids, they naturally grow on tree branches or above rocks and cliffs. Bromeliads are highly appreciated because of their incredible colours and their ease of growth in pots.
We offer a fine selection of bromeliads that are never available through garden centres in Europe. Large scale distribution mostly sells green, thin-leaved hybrids. Our shop keeps an ever-increasing offer of the species with the toughest and most colourful leaves, better adapted to hot and cold conditions of outdoor life. All our bromeliads are shipped as bare root “pups”. These are the robust basal suckers produced after blooming. Bromeliads travel amazingly well in the mail and they are also cheap to ship. Our robust pups will often bloom in less than one year.
