Plant information

General

The Guzmania hope is a world-class star and brings delight everywhere. The flowery red calyx and elegant leaves make this Bromeliad a must-have houseplant. Bromeliads are originally from the Peruvian deserts and South American highlands, but now they grace many residential spaces.

Care

The bromeliad doesn't need much water. As long as the soil is slightly moist, you won't have any problems with this plant. During the summer, the bromeliad requires bit more water, which it stores in the flower. So, just pour water in the flower cup every now and then and make sure that the flower always holds a bit of water.

Placing

A sunny spot out of direct sunlight will make the bromeliad happy. Too much sunlight will cause the edges of the leaves and flower to turn brown.

Propogation

The bromeliad flowers only once, but the flowering period will last three to six months. After this period the flower dies. The short lifespan makes repotting unnecessary. But you can immediately repot the Guzmania directly after purchase.After flowering, shoots will emerge from the base of the bromeliad. Let the shoots grow until they are about half as tall as the mother plant. Then you can carefully detach them, root and all, and move them to a flower pot with nutrient-rich potting soil. Before you know it, you will be surrounded by a bromeliad family!
