    Most bromeliads like indirect light or partial weak sunlight only. If they sit in direct sun too long and the humidity is low the tips of the leaves will go brown (low humidity) and there will be dark patches on the leaves if it gets "burnt" (too much direct sun).
    Not being from USA I can't say whether you position is good. Does it get strong direct sun, because behind glass it would feel even hotter ?

    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.

    no it does not get direct sunlight. It gets probably the last hr-3hrs of sun light, and the rest of the day it gets very faded sun and a little from the kitchen lights.
