The impressive Flaming Sword Bromeliad (Vriesea splendens) shows off its sword-shaped red flower spike and dark green with purple and black stripes. It doesn't bloom until it is aged three to five years. Long yellow tubular flowers will emerge from the red flattened bracts for greater contrast. Expect the bracts to last several weeks to give a great show. Once they fade, pups will form, and propagation naturally begins to recreate the festive look in the future.

Fun Facts

Most bromeliads are categorized as epiphytes (growing on the side of another plant; not needing soil to thrive) The collection of nutrients from waste dropping into the cup of the plant feeds it. In the wild, frogs are a companion as they also find nourishment from the water cup the bromeliad provides where some mosquito larvae live.
