  • Planting
  • Plant the bromeliad as soon as possible after receipt. Choose a planter with holes in the base and with a saucer to catch drained off water. Fill your pot with fresh potting compost and stand the Guzmania at the correct depth in the pot. Add more potting compost and press it all firmly down. Water generously, immediately after planting, and then stand the pot in a warm sunny spot out of full sun. Alternatively you may use a decorative planter with an inner pot.

  • Specifics
  • This bromeliad will look magnificent in your living room. From the rosette of greyish-green striped leaves, a large plume of yellow bracts will appear. The leaves form a sort of funnel where water can collect. The bromelaid only flowers once but the blooms stay on the plant for 3 to 6 months.

    After flowering is over, the bromeliad will make new offshoots that (in perfect conditions) will also flower. Once the new offshoots are large enough they can be detached from the mother plant and transplanted, the mother plant will eventually die.

    Guzmania is classified as Bromeliaceae – a very extensive family of tropical plants with many varieties in all shapes and colours. Many are epiphytic (grow on trees). One of the well-known specimens of the bromeliads family is the pineapple!
