Love these I have some, if you get baby's you have to take them off after they start getting big or the mama will die. Mine have bloomed but it took years, so worth the wait.

@gjones. They are pretty tough plants ,,just some fertilizer every once in awhile. Keep it watered but don't let it sit in water.it's a Low light plant so don't burn her. I use blood meal with a most all my plants every 4 months as well.

These r called,SILVER VASE BROMILADES. I have this one and love it! Mine has put off so many, Pups,this yr. I so far right now have 2 Momma plants,Pup from the first yr from Moms,and the total of 6 Pups and still bearing. I put mine on the front pourch in summer to get morning sun/afternoon shade then cooler mths they r placed in a S.E. facing window or rm. I fertilize mine as I do all my others every 7-14 days during summer. When watering put it in the cup(opening in middle of vase)they love

It,also put fertilizer there and in soil. I have placed river rock around the top of the soil to hold in heat and will help create humidity when I mist them a couple times a day,if I'm around...HOPE THIS HELPS!πŸ˜€
