What is a Pink quill bromeliad?

A Pink quill bromeliad (also known as Wallisia cyanea) is a spectacular air plant native to Ecuador. As an air plant, this Bromeliad doesn’t need to be planted in a substrate, like soil to grow, and can grow on any surface. The plant flowers twice a year, presenting incredibly rich purples and pinks that will look great in any greenhouse or terrarium. Coming from a tropical climate, it’s easy to see why this plant is particularly easy to care for in a hot and humid vivarium.

How do you keep a Pink quill bromeliad?

In the right conditions Pink quill bromeliads are very easy to maintain and manage. They require only occasional light, however, they must be kept in constant humidity and high heat. The easiest way to manage a Pink quill Bromeliad is by putting it in a vivarium or terrarium already set up for tropical plants and animals, such as a Dart frog enclosure.
