    Anyone have a carnivorous bromide?

    I have read a little about carnivorous bromides, but I cant find much on their care. If any of you have one, I'd deeply appreciate some tips.
    Thanx!

    well i guess all bromide is carnivorous since itll just corrode your skin away.

    the bromeliads really arent that hard to take care of. to my knowledge they can grow in the same as the bromeliads you find in stores, except with a little more humidity. 60-85*F seems to be a good temperature range with humidity from 50% on up. a very light open potting mix too. they are after all epiphytes.

    Good luck!

    I have myself a Brocchinia Reducta (carnivorous bromeliad). Here it is growing in my mini-greenhouse among Nepenthes and sundews. Fairly easy to grow, although I must confess I've killed them twice before. The first time was from over-watering, the other time was from fertilizing. I bought myself another and it's been growing well for me ever since. Just keep the soil damp, some water in it's "tank", and about every two weeks, I feed the plant an insect. In fact, I recently noticed over the past day or two that it's been catching ants by itself.

    Cool. I don't think that my terra will do, but I think that it is about time that I got another tank. I am assuming that there is no dormancy required, right?
    Thanx!

    No dormancy, but the plant grows extremely slow. It looks the same for months.

    I know a site that sells full-grown (or at least large) ones for sale for about $20.
