Bromeliads


   


Let us take you into our garden of bromeliads. Bromeliads are plants that you can grow in plant boxes, either on your window sills, on your verandah or balcony. Bromeliads are plants monocot flowering plants. The most quintessential example of a bromeliad would be the pineapple, however, some bromeliads are also epiphytes, growing on tree trunks.

Many bromeliads are able to store water in the space formed between their overlapping leaves. The leaves of many bromeliads have thorns at the end. We know of enthusiasts who only collect bromeliads. Indeed this category alone is broad enough for some gardeners to focus upon.
