Get to Know Aechmea!


The Aechmea is native to tropical forests and grows to about a foot high. Its green leaves are wide and strappy and can appear to be lightly powdered. Heads-up: Be careful when picking up your Aechmea Del Mar since its leaves have spines that can be painful. Other than that this plant is very easy-going which is why it is perfect for beginners.


The Aechmea grows without a stem. Its leaves grow together forming a rosette shape at the center of the plant. The Aechmea Del Mar takes in water through this rosette, which is also known as „the tank“. Make sure the central tank is 1/4 to 1/2 way full of water at all times and flush it regularly. You do not want old water sitting in the tank since this can lead to bacterial infections or pests. To prevent this from happening, empty the tank and rinse your Aechmea Del Mar at least once a month. Do this more often if you spot build up on the leaves. Tip: Use distilled water or rain water to prevent the build up of salts commonly found in tap water.


Aechmeas thrive in bright, indirect light. Put it near an east or west window. This is going to bring out the variegation in their foliage and will help them to flower.


Yes, the Aechma Del Mar is safe for your furry friends.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

So your aechmea bloom turned brown? Well, it might sound harsh, but once your bromeliad bloom has begun to die, you can cut it off! Once a aechmea’s flower begins to die, it is signaling the next cycle in its life. This next cycle is producing pups. Pups are new aechmea plants, which will be the future generation of your bromeliad garden. By cutting off the aechmea’s dying flower, you can help the plant refocus its energy on these new pups.
