Plant Showcase - Bromeliads - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. These are Bromeliads. Bromeliads tend to grow at a base of a tree in the tropics. One thing great about Bromeliads are they are really easy to take care of. All you need to do is give them a little bit of water right in the center here, and that is it. A little bit of filtered light, not too much heave light, just filtered light through a window would do great. These really work well as house plants, they work well as gifts, and their bright colors really are vibrant and beautiful. I really love this plant as a gift.
