Planting and care

The guzmania plant can also be grown in a container and is known as a prized house plant in areas outside of its native region.
Use plant containers and potting medium that is porous, allowing adequate air circulation and fast drainage.
You can purchase potting mix specifically designed for bromeliads or you can mix your own using ingredients such as peat moss, vermiculite, and bark.
Root rot can be avoided with proper watering techniques. Be sure to let the potting mix dry before adding more water.
Also note that Guzmania tend to be top heavy. You may need to anchor your container with heavy rock in the bottom to prevent your plant from toppling.

Sunlight: Require low light and should be kept out of direct sunlight.
Soil: Well-drained soil
Water: Keep the soil moist during the spring and the summer months.
Temperature: Thrive in temperatures of at least 55 degrees F(13 degrees C) or higher
Fertilizer: Add a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the spring and summer and a slow release fertilizer at the end of the summer.

Caring for Guzmania

    Guzmanias require low light and should be kept out of direct sunlight. Because these are tropical plants, they benefit from high humidity. A light mist daily will keep your guzmania looking its best.
