Description

Guzmania bromeliads are wonderfully stunning tabletop plants. They feature long, narrow, shiny green leaves that arise from a deep central cup. The plants are somewhat taller than many bromeliads. Their large and showy flower bracts arise in the summer in an amazing array of colors. Guzmania are not difficult bromeliads to grow, and they will reward you with many weeks of color with little or no effort. 

Guzmania are fairly typical bromeliads. The two best tips for success are: make sure the plant is potted adequately so it won’t pull over the container and provide ample warmth and humidity. If the plant is exposed to cold, dump out the central cup and refill it with warmer water at the first available opportunity. These plants don’t acclimate to higher light levels as well as some other bromeliads, therefore be extra careful about exposure to direct sunlight.

Sunlight – Indirect light or moderate shade. Do not expose to direct sunlight.

Watering – Keep water in the central cup. Change water frequently to prevent rot. Avoid tap water if possible.

Plant Care – These plants don’t acclimate to higher light levels as well as some other bromeliads, therefore be extra careful about exposure to direct sunlight.
