What soil do you use for bromeliad?

Hey! Just wondering if I need to use something other than regular indoor plant soil for my bromeliad? #DroopheadTuftedAirplant #Bromeliad #HappyPlants
6ft to light, direct
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 days ago
I recommend using a nice mix of well-draining potting soil and some orchid soil!
If you want to add a little bit of perlite go ahead and add some, it’s not necessary though.
Make sure the soil you use DRAINS WELL!!
Anyway, good luck with your plant friend! ❀️🌱πŸͺ΄
I use regular soil with added perlite. I think perlite is amazing and it's good for helping the soil drain better and it helps roots breathe. (:
@sarahsalith do you just mix the perlite in the soil or you put on bottom!?
