Watering

One thing that’s different about bromeliad plant care than other houseplants is that you don’t want to water your bromeliads through the soil, instead you should keep their center cup filled with water and their soil dry. As long as there’s fresh water in the center cup, your bromeliad will be happy. It’s also important to keep the water in the cup clean and fresh, you don’t want stagnant water sitting in the cup. Dump out the water and refresh it every week or so to keep the water from going stagnant.
Also, be careful about the type of water you use on your bromeliad house plants, because they are very sensitive to the chemicals in regular tap water. Using tap water on bromeliads can damage or even kill the plant. Rainwater (or melted snow warmed to room temperature) or filtered water are the best types of water to use on bromeliads.
