The sword-shaped foliage of the Energy Bromeliad grows in a rosette formation around a central cup. In nature, this tropical plant is epiphytic and latches onto trees, using the central cup to collect rainwater so it can survive. The leafy-good looks of the Energy Bromeliad make this pet-safe beauty a good choice for a space needing warmth and texture, but this plant also blooms for a dramatic and colorful statement. Flowers can last for months, providing lasting color.

Best Locations For Growing Energy Bromeliad

Bromeliad plants are adaptable, but they prefer increased humidity. The plant absorbs extra moisture in the air to help sustain itself and keep its foliage lush. This plant will thrive in a naturally damp area, but you can still enjoy this lovely plant in dry climates by using a humidifier or a pebble tray with water.

Energy Bromeliad Sunlight Requirements

Place the Energy Bromeliad plant in a spot that receives medium to low indirect light. Bromeliads receive filtered light in nature, so you want to replicate this at home. Feature the Energy Bromeliad in an area that does not receive direct sunlight, as this can damage the leaves.

Energy Bromeliad Care

Bromeliad plants are generally easy to grow and don’t require much care. The flower spike will continue to thrive for several months, and as soon as it shows signs of decline, it can be trimmed away as close to the base of the stem as possible. Bromeliads typically have offsets or new plants after blooming. Wait to separate the new plants or pups until they are at least a couple of inches tall.

Watering Energy Bromeliad

Water Energy Bromeliad plants by filling the cup at the center of the leaves halfway. Wait until the top couple of inches of soil are dry before watering. Avoid filling the cup to the top, as this may promote rot. Do not water the soil around the plant; only water using the cup. Allow the cup to dry out between watering and rinse the cup occasionally to remove dust and mineral buildup.

Feeding Energy Bromeliad

Feed the Energy Bromeliad during the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing. It isn’t necessary to feed plants that are not actively growing. Use a water-soluble fertilizer every couple of weeks to support new growth.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
