Bromeliads add color and beauty to any interior space. They come in a variety of colors and a range of sizes that can suit anyone or any space. Bromeliads are extremely drought tolerant which allows for easy maintenance. They improve air quality, but they do most of the work at night. Studies have shown that nighttime is when bromeliads release most of their oxygen and remove air pollutants.
This plant should be grown in bright, indirect sunlight, either indoors or outdoors. Bromeliads have roots used for clinging to branches for support, so they absorb very little water on their own. For this reason, the soil around the roots must be kept moist, but never wet for long periods. While the plant is growing and blooming, maintaining a small amount of water in the “cup” or center of the plant will provide most of the moisture necessary.

SUCCULENTS AND CACTI
Succulents are a trendy way to bring personality and greenery to your home. They require little maintaining while they help improve the quality of your life. Succulents are continually producing oxygen while they clean the air, reduce humidity, and remove toxins.
Allow the potting soil to dry before watering again as Succulents retain water in their leaves. Succulents need a quick draining potting soil and will not tolerate standing water.
Cactus plants are unique and whimsical. They come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Cactus varieties help absorb carbon dioxide. They convert it into carbohydrates for their nutrition and supply us with oxygen. Cactus plants require minimal moisture and can withstand being dry.
