Water the Vriesea once every one to two weeks. Pour water directly into the natural, cup-shaped receptacle at the base of the leaves. Fill the cup with water, allowing the water to spill over the moss ball.


Soaking Frequency: Every 3 weeks.

Depending on the size of your kokedama, fill a bowl, bucket or sink with room temperature water.

Place your kokedama in the water, plant side up. Push the moss ball down so that it is fully submerged and begins to absorb water. Allow to soak for 10-25 minutes, or until fully saturated with water.

Note: We use rainwater. If you use tap water, we recommend letting a bucket of water seat outside for at least 8 hours at daylight while the chlorine evaporates.


Place the Vriesea bromeliad in semi-shade or bright, filtered sunlight. Good locations include a South or East facing window. Avoid direct, intense light, which may scorch the foliage.


Feed Vriesea two to three times per month from April to October. Use a water-soluble fertilizer formulated Alternatively, use an all-purpose fertilizer diluted to one-fourth to one-eighth of the solution. Withhold fertilizer during late Autumn and Winter months. Keep Vriesea in average to warm room temperatures. Never expose the plant to freezing or extreme temperatures.
