Aechmea fendleri is a blue flowered specie bromeliad from Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago. In comparing photos with the FCBS site it appears that I could probably grow this in a gentler, kinder way. My plants have been grown pretty hard - I did fertilize last year and they do get a some shade in the morning and evening. I get the impression this is a very forgiving bromeliad.

What is the native conditions of this epiphytic 'humid forest' bromeliad? Does it have a real dry/wet season like my bit of Florida. The range shown listed on the Aechmea ssp table appears to be quite variable.
