Bromeliads are stunning plants that are easy to maintain. Sword-shaped dark-green foliage gently arches and grows around a central indentation or cup. This plant blooms, but the flowers are not very showy. What is showy are the leaves that surround the small blooms, which turn a bright purple. The Purple Guzmania Bromeliad will self-propagate after it blooms and set new plants before dying back. This tropical stunner is a distant relative to the pineapple.
Best Locations For Growing Purple Guzmania Bromeliad
The Purple Guzmania Bromeliad makes an excellent addition to any space in need of bold color and lush greenery. Indirect light and increased humidity are best for this plant, so a spot with extra dampness in the air is a good fit.
Purple Guzmania Bromeliad Sunlight Requirements
The Purple Guzmania Bromeliad needs medium to bright indirect light. Choose a spot several feet back from a sunny window or closer to a window that receives less light. Too much light can scorch the foliage, and plants in low light may not push out new growth.
Purple Guzmania Bromeliad Care
Bromeliads set flowers, and after they are done blooming, the plant will produce offshoots or pups. Once the new plants are established, they can be removed from the main plant. The parent plant will die back a short time later.
Watering Purple Guzmania Bromeliad
The foliage of the Purple Guzmania Bromeliad grows around a central cup. In nature, the plant would collect rainwater in the cup, but as a houseplant, you water the plant by filling the cup. Let the cup dry out and fill it about halfway. Do not fill the cup to the top.
Feeding Purple Guzmania Bromeliad
Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once in the spring. Feeding the plant at the start of the growing season helps support new growth. Hold off on applying fertilizer during the fall and winter if the plant is not actively growing.
