Now here's a fiery plant diva ready to set your space ablaze with style! The Flaming Sword Bromeliad, with its vibrant red and orange hues reminiscent of a sizzling sunset and stunning patterned leaves, is a true showpiece.

Not only is it a looker that’ll leave other plant admirers in awe, but it’s care is easy-peasy! Treat it like a drama-loving friend: keep it in bright, indirect light, water it sparingly in its central cup, making sure to allow the soil to reach near dryness before its next drink, and let it bask in the admiration of your guests.

When it comes to displaying this tropical wonder, let your imagination run wild! Pair it with a quirky, eclectic planter for a maximalist vibe, or let it be the fiery focal point in a minimalist setting with a sleek, simplistic ceramic. Want to really turn up the heat? Pair it with something a little more futuristic, like a  metallic or mirrored pot, to amplify its radiant charm.

Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or just dipping your toes into the world of greenery, the Flaming Sword Bromeliad is sure to ignite your passion for plants and add a spark of eccentricity to your home!

Safe around pets and children!

Follow these instructions to keep your Bromeliad healthy and happy.

Water: Water the soil when the top layer has become dry. The 'cup' or 'well' of the plant needs to be kept topped up with water, and that water should be changed every two weeks.
Light: Bright, indirect light is best, though it can handle brighter or dimmer light.
Humidity: Average humidity is just fine. Misting the plant is good. 
Fertilize: Fertilise once a month during the summer months.
