Guzmania plants are epiphytic plants and attach to trees with roots that never reach the soil. In their natural enviroment their leaves collect rainwater and the plant receives nourishment from decomposing leaves and droppings from monkeys and birds. Water in the center of the rosette with chemical free water. Guzmanias prefer bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light than many other bromeliads.
Guzmanias thrive in temperatures of at least 55 F. (13 C.) or higher. Because these are tropical plants, they benefit from moderate-to-high humidity. A light mist daily will keep your guzmania looking its best.
Not toxic to pets.
