What plant is this?


How often does this need watering?

Do flowers bloom as this plant has been like this for 4 weeks plus?

    Its a bromeliad ... looks like Bilbergia nutans aka Queen’s Tears, Queen’s Earrings etc. 
    The flowers are quite long lasting and will continue to develop.

  • Thank you. Does this need to be repotted in a bigger pot or will it be okay?Dovefromabove said:

    It looks absolutely fine as it is. A lovely plant.

     Keep it in good light but not bright sunlight. Water when the soil an inch below the surface feels dry (stick your finger in) and don’t let the pot stand in water. 

    They're tough plants so don’t worry about it. Enjoy :)
