Can you cut the top off a bromeliad?
Only the flower head could be cut off but that would look funny. The cup, urn or vase is the central part of the bromeliad from which the flower stalk forms & grows out off. It's best to use pruners but scissors will do if you don't have pruners. Just make sure your cutting tool is clean & sharp.
How often should I water Pink Quill?
Pink Quill Plant Care Tips
Light: Bright, indirect light is needed to grow and bloom. Water: Spray with water until leaves are thoroughly wet, 2-3 times a week. The water that runs off should be enough to wet the roots. Do not soak base of the plant, which can cause the flower stem to rot.
How do you save a Pink Quill?
Pink quill plants do best when positioned in a sunny spot. This will prolong the flowering period and keep the plant happy and healthy. However, too much direct and intense afternoon sunlight can burn the foliage, and too little will mean they won't bloom.
Why is my bromeliad fading?
While many bromeliads may be known for their ability to tolerate low light levels, their color may begin to fade if they are not receiving enough light for their specific species. When your bromeliad doesn't get the sunlight it needs, it may begin to lose its natural color and turn a deep shade of green.
