BromeliadCommon names: bromeliad, urn plant, flaming sword

Description: These foliage plants have central floral spikes up to 2 feet tall and 8- to 10-inch long spiny-edged leaves that form a cup that can hold water. In some species, the flower has waxy, colored leaves. Other species send up an actual inflorescence. These plants bloom six weeks to four months, depending on variety.

Special care: Drench dry soil and fertilize monthly. Drain excess water. Keep the central cups of foliage filled with water, but change it weekly. Keep plants in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves.

Hi Kerri,

Bromeliads are chill sensitive, so bring them inside.

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
