Re: Bromeliads

Hey Andrea
No worries, I forgot too.  These are the ones that are hardy and in
the ground.  Never thought they would make it but here they are and blooming. 
Don't know the varieties but they have redish orange blooms with bluish on the
tips.  They're pretty cool and again right in the ground and spreading.  So
what do I do for them?  Spray them with water once in a while.  They get
almost no direct sun and any they do get is late in the afternoon.  That's it!

Hi Dave-I confess I did not recall you promised me a bromeliad. I
also confess
that might not be a good idea. I seem to be a bromeliad killer.
The only one I
haven't managed to kill yet is my giant silver leaved one,
can't recall the
genus or species at the moment-I need more coffee. Oh I
forgot, I also have
one small one that seems to be doing OK. I need to study
more about them. I
also am wondering when my big one is going to bloom again.
I "saved" it from
the Garden Gate when it was going to be thrown out. It's
really gorgeous-one
of those that all the places sell with the big silver
leaves and pink "blooms"

How do you get those guys to thrive????
