But also, don’t put them in a dark corner. Bromeliads which are not getting enough light will grow long, floppy, green leaves, but with little trademark colour. If you see this is happening with your plants, place your plant right away to an area, where they get plenty of light that will help the colour to return.

If you are staying in a region where the nighttime temperature goes above 60 degrees, place them inside to outside because it can not bear too much heat or summer. You can do another thing - placing them inside a protected area or sheltered (hardening off) for a few days that will help the plants used to the changing environment. After a few days, place them outside where they do well in presence of morning sun. But keep them inside or protect from the shield during the afternoon because this will bake your plants.

Before planting Bromeliads, you need to aware of these things which will help your plants to grow effectively:
