60cm Bromeliad | Guzmania Francesca | 13cm Pot | By Plant Theory

Beautiful foliage with a colourful central flower

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.

The Guzmania Francesca is best suited to a bright room; lots of light is needed to get the variegation on the foliage and a good bloom in the centre. Avoid direct light as this can burn the plant.

These plants get a lot of their required moisture through their foliage which makes a bathroom where they'll be moisture in the air, an ideal spot. You can also increase humidity by misting the leaves with a spray bottle.

With Bromeliads, there are two places that you can water the plant. Keeping the central tube where the flower emerges filled about a quarter of the way up will help give moisture to the foliage. You can also a water a little through the soil, but make sure you allow time for it to drain away so you can avoid root rot.
