Each Bromeliad will have more than one preferred growing situation, as most Bromeliads are very adaptable. The symbols explain where they are best suited in the garden, which is not necessarily the situation they are found in the wild. Where the variety is quite happy in more than one situation, several symbols will be used together, for example epiphyte and terrestrial together. Where only one symbol is used, the variety is not likely to prefer other situations.
