40-50cm Bromeliad | Guzmania Francesca | 13cm Pot
- Houseplants supplied in a nursery pot as standard.
Bromeliad | Guzmania Francesca | 13cm Pot | By Plant TheoryThe Guzmania Francesca or Bromeliad offer up some of the brightest colours you can get from a small houseplant. Once seen as a tricky indoor plant, many varieties have begun making their way into our homes and are proving to be very adept at growing inside the home. Bromeliads mostly originate from the Americas but can be found everywhere from rainforests to deserts so their care guides can vary from species to species. The pineapple is a fruit born from a Bromeliad! In our homes they bring beautiful foliage and stunning flowers that come in a range of colours. This variety features upward arching leaves in a beautiful dark green whilst central to the plant is a beautiful dramatic red and yellow flower. These plants tend to flourish in warm moist conditions so a bathroom can be the perfect spot.
These plants can be forced to flower by placing them in a tied plastic bag with a ripe apple!

Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
