Guzmania (Bromeliad) Care

Guzmania (Bromeliad) Care

Guzmania's are one of the most common bromeliads grown as a houseplant, and one of the most stunning. Its green leaves are topped by clusters of red, orange, yellow, purple, or white flowers. 

Lighting: Guzmanias prefer and are happiest in bright, natural light. An east or west exposure would be best but just be sure they avoid exposure to any direct, hot sun because they’ll burn. They’ll be fine in low light for a few weeks, but they won’t be as long-lasting. If you want them for the long haul & have them produce pups, bright light is the ticket.

Water: Guzmanias have a tank, cup, vase or urn (the central well which the flower stalk arises out of) which is how they collect a lot of the water they need. You want to keep that vase about 1/4 of the way full of water & flush it out with fresh water every 1-2 months to avoid any build-up of bacteria.

Temperature: If your house is a comfortable temperature for you, then your Guzmania will do just fine. You just want to avoid any areas with cold or hot drafts.
