I've had this bromeliad in my garden since 2010 and planted it into the ground under the shade of oaks and Philodendrons. The first recurring bloom was not until 2012. I didn't get another bloom until last year 2015, and had two blooms. I am getting a bloom this year, but just one so far. The plant starts a bloom as early as the beginning of Jan, and they last all the way until July before they completely fade out. Takes cold temps all the way to almost freezing with minimal damage. I will toss a cloth over it if we dip below freezing. Not in irrigation. Gets rain water or hand watering in drought times. Slow growing.
