Bromeliad Guzmania

Guzmania Rana

If you’re tired of buying expensive cut flower arrangements for your dining room table or the reception desk in your office, think about using bromeliad plants. There are over 2500 species of bromeliads that are native to North, Central and South America. My favorites Bromeliads are: Neoregelia, Aechmea, and Guzmania. Bromeliad plants have spectacular flowers which are really “bracts” that stay colorful for 6-10 weeks. There are numerous varieties of bromeliads to choose from all with different leaf colors and shapes. The exotic looking bracts come in red, burgundy, pink, white, yellow, orange, and even a mixture of colors. Use a single bromeliad plant or combine three different bromeliads to create your own special arrangement. A bromeliad  blooms once indoors, then it’s necessary to start a new plant using cuttings from the original plant.
