FUN Word  – Bromelaid – What is it?

Bromeliads are perennial monocotyledons — plants that have one seed leaf like lilies or corn, rather than two seed leaves like roses or beans. Their seeds have a food reserve, which means bromeliads can be grown like most other plants.The pineapple was the first bromeliad to make an impression in Europe.
