Bromeliads require very little fertilising but how much and how often is still a hotly discussed topic amongst growers!. Some varieties are able to take more feeding than others but over fertilising plants such as Neoregelias will result in long strappy leaves and loss of colour. At Bromagic we simply add a pinch of slow release fertiliser into the potting medium when first potting our Neoreglias pups and that is usually sufficient. At the end of the plant’s life we may also add a pinch of slow release fertilser to the pot to encourage one final pup!
Never place fertiliser in the cups as this may burn any newly emerging leaves.
