Within the last hundred years, bromeliads have become more widely used as ornamental plants. Originally found only in royal botanical gardens or the private greenhouses of wealthy Europeans, their  popularity has spread to the masses. There are many species of Bromeliads – some being terrestrial and some epiphytic.  In almost all cases, Bromeliads prefer light, well-draining potting mixes.  Most mixes will contain a bark component and in  some cases bark alone.  The beneficial aspects of Orchiata apply to Bromeliads as well.
