My vriesea "tiffany" is nowhere near 4-6 feet tall as suggested above -- it's actually quite small for a vriesea. This plant can stay outdoors in shade-morning sun as long as temps stay above 40 degrees. Once flowering is finished, the mother plant dies, but usually a number of offsets ("pups") have already formed which can be separated and grown on. Wire baskets are useful to prevent root rot from overwatering.
