And the best part? The vibrant, towering, multilayered fuchsia blooms on the Bromeliad vriesea Intenso Pink. Forget average plants; venture into the world of ‘unexpected’!

    The Best Unboxing Practices:

    Properly caring for your newly unboxed Bromeliad vriesea Intenso Pink for the first week of its new life is crucial to the extended wellness of your plant. Follow these practices to get the best results:
    • Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Bromeliad until it exhibits the proper signs.
    • Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf-loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week. 
    • Lighting: Place your Bromeliad in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Bromeliad vriesea Intenso Pink to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.

      • Are Bromeliads pet safe? Yes, they are! Bromeliads are non-toxic to pets and people.
      • What maintenance do Bromeliads require? Bromeliads don’t require much more maintenance than your average houseplant.
