    I love growing bromeliads.
    I also love seeing them bloom, so when I recently bought this bromeliad I waited a week then took it's photo.

    I then took a closer look at the bloom and I noticed that some-one (or something!) was also enjoying my bromeliad bloom.

    Hi Neil

    I love them too, I have literally thousands.

    Slyfi it depends on what kind of Brom you have. Mopst of them are fairly easy and enjoy similar conditions so assuming you have a Neoregalia or similar just keep them warm, very free draining media (I use wood shavings, charcoal or even nothing) and keep some water in the middle of the cup.

    Cheers, Troy.

    I have some 30 in my collection (and always looking for more Fatboy!) I think they are wonderful plants: such beautiful colors and different forms. For me, they are easier to grow than spiderplants (Chlorophytum), are very forgiving of forgetting to water, and are all round great plants, especially when they flower. They are also perfect for sharing as they make numerous offsets after flowering.

    Tamlin, are you hinting at Troy (fatboy)? Because if you are, then I'd like to hint too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    Troy, I've seen your Bali garden and it looks absolutely fabulous. I'm trying to persuade my wife that we should go to Bali for another holiday, trouble is we only went last December!
    Happy growing, Neil.
    p.s. perhaps you can PM or reply as to your bromeliad source?

    Hi Neil and Tamlin

    Tamlin if you are able to receive plants from me then I have no problem in sending you a couple of pups, let me know if you think it'll work. Give me some ideas as to what you like too.

    Neil as PFT doesn't sell Broms (I don't think?) I'll tell you who I got my Broms from. My apologies if I'm crossing any lines here, more than happy to delete or edit this if neccessary.
    About 7 years ago I bought a couple of thousand from a guy named Keith Golinski who runs Bromagic in Qld, Australia. I have to say he was very good and I am always happy to recommend him to anyone that asks.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Troy,
    I know the guy and I've ordered some airplants from him previously. In fact I have another package of airplants on the way from him. I've not tried ordering any other type of bromeliad from him.
    A couple of thousand?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]
    Wow!!!
    Was it a personal order or a business order? Just curious,...
    happy growing, Neil.

    Hi Neil,
    Any advice on your watering and light regime for growing airplants in Singapore? My plants always seems to die after a few months.
