The pot you choose will have a direct effect on the growth of your bromeliad. Consider the following:
- Plastic pots: Plastic pots tend to keep your plants moist for longer. These are perfect for raising bromeliads in hotter homes or drier areas.
- Clay pots: Unglazed clay pots are porous, which means they won’t hold water very well. These are great to use in high humidity areas, so your plant won’t stay wet for too long. However, remember to use a pad or saucer under it to avoid spills and damage to floors and furniture.
