...And why plant tissue culture and bromeliads do go together
Bromeliad plants take very long to germinate from seed (some bromeliad seeds could take up to a year to just germinate). Obtaining bromeliads from pups could also mean a pretty long wait. Tissue culture involves the mass production of true-to-type plants from carefully selected, good quality sources under controlled conditions. The end-result is plantlets that can be either exported at the ex-agar or in-agar stage or carefully hardened off in a greenhouse, for the local market. As these plants are grown exponentially under near-ideal conditions, they have excellent vigour, are disease free and hardy, and can be obtained in large numbers and uniform sizes in a short period of time as compared to conventional techniques.
Many tillandsias and some aechmeas are epiphytes or lithophytes... that is, they can grow on trees or rocks, but don't depend on them for their nutrition.
........ you don't need to pot these; you can provide a spectacular, subtropical look to your garden by just 'planting' them on trees, or have a great rock garden speckled with broms!
Bromeliads have shallow roots...
....... so you can 'mix'n'match' some of your favourite shade-loving broms in a large pot, and bring nature into your living room!
Bromeliads are extremely resilient...
...... they don't need the 'royal treatment' just because they're exotic - they look great along fence lines and driveways, and make terrific borders!!!
Bromeliads and Interior Design...
With modern interior design turning to plants for beautifying interiors due to their ability to bring life and energy indoors, the focus is increasingly shifting to no-fuss, non-messy, shade loving plants for that extra touch of pizzazz to a room. It's no surprise that bromeliads feature at the top of the list! A large shade loving brom, or a 'brom-bouquet' in a large hanging basket can add a classic touch to an ordinary corner of any room..
