Description: Guzmania Bromeliads are popular for their striking, colorful bracts that rise above the foliage in shades of red, orange, yellow, or pink. These tropical plants are known for their rosette of narrow, green leaves and long-lasting central flower spike.

🌿 Botanical Name: Guzmania spp.

🐾 Pet Warning: Non-toxic to cats and dogs. Guzmania Bromeliads are safe for a household with pets.

💧 Care Level: Easy to Moderate. Guzmanias are relatively low-maintenance but do require specific care to thrive, especially in terms of watering and light.

📏 Approximate Size: Guzmania Bromeliads can reach a height and spread of about 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm), depending on the species and growing conditions.

🌞 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can reduce flowering and color vibrancy.

💧 Water: Water by filling the central cup of the plant and keeping it filled. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out slightly before watering the soil directly. Use distilled or rainwater to avoid mineral build-up.

💦 Humidity: Thrives in high humidity. Mist the leaves regularly or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity around the plant.

🌡️ Temperature: Prefers warm conditions, ideally between 60°F to 80°F (16°C to 27°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).

❄️ Hardiness: Best kept as an indoor plant in most climates. In USDA zones 10-12, Guzmanias can be grown outdoors.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed with a half-strength, balanced, liquid fertilizer monthly during the growing season. Do not apply directly to the central cup.

🔄 Re-potting: Generally, Guzmanias do not need to be repotted as they are short-lived plants that die after blooming. However, you can remove and pot up offsets (pups) that form around the base of the plant.

🌱 Propagation: Propagate by removing pups from the mother plant when they are about one-third the size of the parent. Plant them in their own pots with well-draining potting mix.
