Stopped at Produce Junction in Bensalem Pa to buy some veggies to make corn beef and cabbage. When I walked in there were carrots and celery which I like to add. Picked up some baby red potatoes when I spotted this woman with an unusually beautiful plant. I was so taken with the color. We started a conversation I asked her what it was and how to take care of it. There was a bit of a language barrier but we did communicate quite well.
She guided me to where the plants were the sign read bromeliad. No light she said. Flower in middle put water every few months. Sometimes bring in the bathroom when you take shower. I picked one up and talked to it. She said good you talk it will grow for you.
I Loved the colors and decided to look it up on Google when I got home No one who worked there knew how to care for the plant except this kind lady.
Well only problem was I forgot the cabbage and onions. By the way, this plant was $6.00 it is a beauty and quite a large plant. Thank goodness for Google and YouTube
Here is a video on the plant I purchased Cleo does seem to like it too.
