Bromeliads are related to pineapples, but that’s not even the most interesting thing about these tropical houseplants. Tall, narrow leaves grow in a rosette formation and gently arch, creating a graceful bunch of foliage. These plants bloom with flower clusters known as an inflorescence, but the flowers are subtle and not flashy. The foliage around the flowers turns vibrant hues, which catches the eye. The Orange Guzmania Bromeliad boasts lovely orange plumes of foliage at the top of the plant.
Best Locations For Growing Orange Guzmania Bromeliad
The Orange Guzmania Bromeliad is pet friendly, allowing for flexible placement options around the home. Use this plant to add a burst of color to a sunny dining room, an entryway, or a living room. The humidity-loving foliage will thrive in a steamy bathroom.
Orange Guzmania Bromeliad Sunlight Requirements
Medium to bright indirect light is necessary for the Orange Guzmania Bromeliad. This plant needs consistent light to maintain its colorful foliage. Direct sunlight will damage the bright leaves, so position it back from a south- or west-facing window.
Orange Guzmania Bromeliad Care
Dust buildup on the foliage can prevent the plant from effectively conducting photosynthesis. Clean the foliage using a damp cloth and rinse out the central cup to remove mineral buildup.
Watering Orange Guzmania Bromeliad
Bromeliad plants are unique because the foliage grows around a central indentation or cup. In nature, rainwater collects in the cup, which is how the plant sustains itself. Water Bromeliads grown indoors by filling the cup halfway. Let the cup dry out before filling again. The Orange Guzmania Bromeliad is a tropical plant that appreciates increased humidity. Find a damp area or use a pebble tray or humidifier to make the plant feel at home.
Feeding Orange Guzmania Bromeliad
Apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once per month during the spring and summer. The Orange Guzmania Bromeliad only needs to be fertilized when the plant is actively growing. Do not feed the plant during the fall and winter when it is dormant.
