Planting and care

Because these are tropical plants, they benefit from high humidity.
A light mist daily will keep your guzmania looking its best.
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.
