To Bloom or Not to Bloom?

That is the question for Bromeliads.

Some have big, bold blooms.

Some have colorful bracts, sepals, or leaves instead. Their tiny blooms are inconspicuous.

Some have tanks full of water, while others depend on constant humidity.

Some are terrestrial.

Some are epiphytes.

They all belong to the pineapple family, but so does Spanish moss.

I am wondering about this family. There seems to be too much variety to be related.

Bromeliads have beauty in many forms.
