Pink Quill is a member of the bromeliad family of air plants, and gets its name from the plume of bright pink bracts that last for months.

Arching, narrow green leaves grow in a rosette with flower spikes appearing in summer. Its pink bracts are densely overlapping, with violet-blue flowers emerging for a brief show. Putting your plant on a plant stand while it's in bloom will give it all the attention it deserves.

Matching the bromeliad care in your home with that of their native rainforest habitat will keep them healthy. 

Tillandsias are epiphytes in their native Ecuador and have small roots, mainly used for anchoring themselves on trees. Because the roots don't drink up water, these tree-dwelling plants gather moisture and nutrients through their leaves. Misting Pink Quill plant with water and foliar fertilizer will make it feel right at home.

Plants will bloom when they reach maturity, usually in 2-3 years. Like other bromeliads, they'll bloom once then produce offsets. Propagating the offsets will allow you to enjoy a collection for many years.

No flowers? Pink Quill plants that don't bloom aren't getting enough light. Move your plant closer to a window, but out of hot, direct midday sun. Brrr... keep this tropical native warm, too. It needs a temperature of about 75°F/24°C to flower. 

Something bugging your bromeliad? Although pests are not common, it may get infested by scale insects, aphids or spider mites. Check regularly for pests and treat any infestation right away.
