Bromeliad | Guzmania Francesca | 13cm Pot | By Plant Theory

The 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.

Planting Tip

These plants can be forced to flower by placing them in a tied plastic bag with a ripe apple!

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).

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.
