Rose Guzmania Bromeliad, otherwise known as Guzmania monostachia, Bromeliad Guzmania, Guzmania Bromeliad 'Rose', and West Indian Tufted Airplant, is a slow-growing epiphytic cultivar originating from Central and South America. A humidity-tolerant perennial distantly related to the common pineapple, Rose Guzmania Bromeliad has elongated evergreen foliage and develops crimson bracts that last for almost four months when this herbaceous air plant blooms. If afforded bright direct light, average temperatures, and high humidity, Rose Guzmania Bromeliad will add charm to any home or office.
Best Locations For Growing Rose Guzmania Bromeliad
Rose Guzmania Bromeliad prefers bright indirect light, temperatures ranging between 60°F to 85°F, and humidity levels of 60% to 70%. Any room possessing these conditions such as a bathroom is ideal. Also, since this lovely house plant is nontoxic to people and pets, you can maintain this striking Bromeliad in any room and not worry about little hands or paws being at risk.
Rose Guzmania Bromeliad Sunlight Requirements
Rose Guzmania Bromeliad prefers bright indirect light. A south-facing, west-facing or east-facing window will suffice; however, during periods of direct light, place this lovely house plant a few feet away from any windows in order to prevent sunburn.
Rose Guzmania Bromeliad Care
This Bromeliad prefers moist, well-draining, acidic soil with a target pH range of 5.0 to 6.0. While most epiphytes don’t require soil, this Bromeliad thrives in a balanced houseplant potting soil amended with peat moss/sand/perlite/coco coir. Rose Guzmania Bromeliad produces showy scarlet blooms most often during winter or spring. This plant, however, is monocarpic, meaning it will only produce flowers once, usually after three years, and then die. Typically, however, the mother plant will produce offsets prior to dying and so you will have ample opportunities to maintain the splendor of this cultivar year after year.
Watering Rose Guzmania Bromeliad
Rose Guzmania Bromeliad can be watered by pouring water into the main circular depression that is created by this plant’s foliage or by dampening the soil surrounding this tropical perennial. Only water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry to the touch. The need to water will decrease as you progress from the growing season to the dormant period.
Feeding Rose Guzmania Bromeliad
This slow-growing Bromeliad does not require a lot of fertilizer. Once or twice per month during the summer, feed this lovely plant a balanced water-soluble fertilizer diluted 50% during the growing season. Do not feed this tropical perennial, however, when it is blooming.
