Should I Put My Bromeliad In The Sun?

Q: My new bromeliad gets light directly through a window for an hour in the morning but the rest of the day there’s no direct light. The leaves are turning brown and it looks very unhappy with me. 

A: Generally speaking, bromeliads prosper when they get some shade but also intermittent bright sunshine. This mimics their native tropical environment. Despite your room being bright most of the day, I think your bromeliad needs more light. Move it to a sunnier spot if you can.
