Urban: Beautiful evergreen with spiky leaves, and bright, fleshy flowers that attract pollinators. Planted around the edges of your garden, Bromliads can deter pets and other large animals from trampling and digging up your garden beds. As an epiphyte, it can grow in tree branches, and traps water and nutrients from falling plant fodder. Bromiliads attract snails, who hide within its leaf folds, but slip and drown during heavy rains to become food for the plant. Grown indoors, Bromiliads can be fed with heavily diluted, organic liquid fertiliser applied to the center of the plant instead of its roots.
