Planting+

Plant this bromeliad as soon as posible upon receipt. Choose a planter with holes in the base and with a saucer to catch surplus water. You can also use a decorative pot with an inner pot. Fill your pot with fresh potting compost and plant the Vriesea at the correct depth in the pot. Add more potting compost, press it all firmly down and water generously. Then place the pot in a warm sunny spot out of full sun.
 

Care+

The Vriesea is a very easy houseplant that requires little or no maintenance. Water regularly, keeping the soil moist at all times. They like a little water in the centre of the plant as well as the soil. You will notice that the water remains in the funnel-shaped bracts, this is good. Preferably use either rain water or warm water, do not use water containing lime. Plant food is unnecessary. The ideal temperature should be between 16-24 degrees centigrade for this bromeliad.

Extra+

This bromeliad holds a very striking presence in the home. A large bloom appears from the rosette of leaves. The leaves form a sort of funnel. A bromeliad flowers once only but the blooms stay on the plant for 3 to 6 months.

After flowering is over, the bromeliad will make new shoots that (in perfect conditions) will also flower. Once the new shoots are large enough, the mother plant will die off.

Vriesea is classified under Bromeliaceae – a very extensive family of tropical plants with many varieties in all shapes and colours. Many are epiphytic (grow on trees). A well-known member of the bromeliad is the pineapple.
