  • Bromeliads commonly have “tanks” formed by their tightly overlapping leaves at the base of the plant. This resiovoir collects water from rainfall, and allows the plant to take up water after rainfall.
  • Bromeliads undergo CAM photosynthesi

Look For:

  • Flower, if in bloom, is bright with vivid blue and pink colors (see picture below).
  • Note the spiny edges of the leaves that would prevent predators.
  • Basin where water can collect at the center of this plant
