Planting Bromeliads - Orientation
If this is a dumb question, I apologize. I feel like it's such a minor thing that no one sees any reason to say it.
When I planted two bromeliads, I simply put them each into a naturally occurring hole in a piece of mopani. They seem to be doing well enough, but they are not oriented with the opening straight up. One is up and slightly diagonal, and I think that one is fine, but the other one is a lot more horizontal. I mist a couple of times a day, and shoot a jet of water into each brom to rinse it out and leave some water sitting inside.
Will the wayward brom gradually grow to orient the right way? I can see that it is growing roots into the wood, so I feel somewhat confident that it's doing OK. If it's doomed to do poorly due to the orientation, I'd rather fix it before it gets too enmeshed with the mopani.
