Description

Guzmania is a popular genus of bromeliad widely seen in public indoor spaces because of their most attractive colourful flower bracts.

Sr Item name
1 Guzmania (Orange) - Plant
2 6 inch (15 cm) Grower Round Plastic Pot (Black)

Striking bracts grow from the centre of the plant and can be red, yellow, orange or deep purple depending on the species. Leaves are thin and dark green. They cause no injury to their host plant but just use them for support.

The leaves come together to form a star shape in the middle. What is commonly mistaken as the flower on the plant is actually a grouping of modified leaves, called bracts.
