Bromiliad family have shapes that you want to touch to check whether they really are real. In exchange for a bit of light and a drop of water, they treat you to spectacular colours and a tropical feel. There are more than 2800 species, the most beautiful and easiest of which have been adopted as houseplants.
Bromeliads probably developed in the Cretaceous period some 65 million years ago. Fossil specimens have been dated to 30 million years ago, so that they can justifiably be considered primaeval. Bromeliads originate from the rugged Andes mountains and the warm jungles of Uruguay, but are now found throughout Central and South America. Some species grow on the ground, whilst others are epiphytes, meaning the plant grows on trees without extracting nutrients from it, using its leaves and roots to get moisture from the air.
Bromeliads only flower once, but lasts 3 to 6 months.
