Guzmania is as charismatic and elated as her name. The kind of houseplant that involuntarily raises questions about how nature can produce such a strange preacher and elicits a sense of whether it really is not plastic.
It is not that: Guzmania is a purely natural voyage of discovery in which a stem of ribbon-shaped leaves grows a stem with red, pink, yellow or orange bracts with yellow-white flowers in between. Because of the rich range of colors, the plant is an ideal seasoning in neutral interiors: you can adjust the whole atmosphere in a room with a few copies. Guzmania is also a sustainable houseplant that continues to bloom unstoppable for up to three months. Solo or as a group together: the cheerful trumpets get the summer already in the house!
Ticket to the Tropics
In the wild, Guzmania grows in the tropical rainforests of South America. The plant comes from the large, tropical Bromelia family that has 2800 different portraits. Guzmania is the kind of plant with which people show who they are: not exactly a wallflower, but a striking roommate, who is very easy to handle and yet always impresses.
Location: From the sun, in a warm, humid place: kitchens and bathrooms are ideal.
Temperature: At least 18 º C, preferably slightly warmer.
Care: Guzmania thrives on mild neglect: pour some water into the rosette during flowering, but avoid a foot bath.
