Bromeliad 'Aechmea fasciata'
Pot in well-draining potting mix and place in bright, indirect sunlight. Unlike other plants, you need to provide a few inches of water to the plant’s central reservoir, keeping the potting mixture just barely moist, and mist the foliage regularly. Switch out the water inside the central reservoir every few weeks to discourage bacteria buildup. Provide comfortably warm indoor temperatures, high humidity, and airflow.
Bromeliads are unique in that they are monocarpic- they flower at the end of their life cycle and start anew with offsets at their base. Once the flower stalk of your bromeliad has passed, cut it off as close to the base as possible and upkeep regular maintenance until the offsets are 1/3-1/2 the size of the mother plant. You can then remove the offsets and place them in their own pots!
