Scientific Name: Guzmania spp.
Common Names: Guzmania, Tufted Airplant
Maximum Height: 0.6m
A popular genus of bromeliad, the colorful flower bracts of Guzmanias are popular in public indoor spaces. The plant can grow as tall and as wide as 0.6m. Its leaves are green and smooth. The guzmania is also known as pineapple flowers. The pineapple is an auspicious fruit, as it is called ong lai in Hokkien, meaning incoming good fortune.
Guzmania survive well in low light conditions and tolerant of artificial light. They cannot, however, be exposed to intense direct sunlight. Guzmania take in water through their central tank and leaves in addition to their roots. Ideally, water the plant from its side onto the cup, ensuring water is not collected in the bracts or flowering portion of the plant as it will shorten the life of the inflorescence. Make sure to flush the cup regularly to avoid disease and the build up of minerals found in the water. Preferably, you should use rainwater or distilled water to do so. This will eliminate any salt build up on the leaves that tap water may leave behind.
