There are many types of bromeliads and several books have been written about them. These comments are general so expect exceptions. Cultural information about specific types of bromeliads can be found in any good reference. Most bromeliads require full sun but some need only bright light. Some are epiphytes so require a porous soil mix. Bromeliads with a central cup need water in the cup and on the soil. Bromeliads need fertilizer but use it at half strength or less. Temperatures should be between 60 and 70 degrees. Do not pot too deeply and do not polish the leaves.

Propagation is by division.
