If you’re looking for vibrant color and easy care, look no further than the ‘Del Mar’ Bromeliad. The ‘Blue Tango’s’ hypnotic blue and purple flowers on their hot pink spike light up a room and create a truly tropical mood.

Outdoors, the Del Mar is well suited to grow in many different frost-free regions, preferring light shade or indirect sunlight. They also thrive indoors, even in office spaces with florescent lighting. The Del Mar is quite hardy, not susceptible to many pests.

Because there is no stem to the plant, the leaves actually come together to form a type of rosette (commonly called a “tank”) to take in water. Keeping  water in the central “tank” will keep the plant flourishing

  1. loromea (verified owner)

    I received this approximately in late April early May and it was beautiful right out the box and it has stayed beautiful to this day, the end of October. The packaging was great it was easy to remove. no struggling to remove it. I thought I wrote a review when I received it but I guess it didn’t post. I did this now because everyday I go out see it on my back porch area and just now it is starting to lose some of its bloom. I have taken pictures of it currently wish I had done when I received it. It was worth it since I do so love Bromeliads.

  2. Laurie (verified owner)

    I was so surprised to receive such a beautiful plant. It was a mature plant and in bloom as well! So worth the price. I would never hesitate to order from PlantVine in the future. They greatly exceeded my expectations.

  3. Daniel (verified owner)

    Plant arrived in good shape and boxed appropriately. A couple of base leaves have yellowed in the past 3 days I’ve had it, but that may be normal. I do wish there was specific information about the Blue Tango variety included with the plant. I’m still unsure as to whether to keep water in the tank and how moist or dry to let the soil become between watering. That would be helpful information.

    Hi Daniel, This is normal we always recommend waiting 1-2 weeks to replant/repot the plant as it is healing from shipment and acclimating to its new environment. When caring for an Aechmea in your home, it is important to keep water in its central tank at all times. Be sure to flush this water regularly. Regular but moderate watering is called for because Aechmea doesn’t usually require a lot of water. Limit the watering and wait for the soil to be thoroughly dry before watering again. I will be sending you more detailed care tips for your plants. You can always reach out to us at for any questions and more detailed instructions if needed!
