Sowing instructions: It is important to use a soilless potting medium. The potting medium should be able to retain moisture well. A mixture of half peat moss and half vermiculite is recommended. Orchid mixes will also work well. Bromeliads often prefer their growing medium slightly acidic. Sphagnum peat moss should provide some acidity. Any soilless mixture should work as long as it is sterile. Sprinkle the seeds directly on top of the potting medium. It is very important that you do not cover or bury the seeds with soil mix. Potting medium should not dry out.


Planting instructions: sun, partial shade.
