The bromelia originates from Central and South America. There, they appear in many colors and shapes. The Vriesea is a bromelia with a branched flower and compact green leaves. You find them mostly in shades of yellow, orange and red but two-tone vrieseas are also available.

Name: Vriesea

Origin: From the tropical regions of Central and South America.

Light: from light to very bright, never expose to direct sunlight.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Watering: once a week

Fertilization: not necessary

Care

Place the Vriesea in a well-lit area in the house away from direct afternoon sun. Give the plant water in the chalice which is the heart of the plant from where the flower grows. From this heart, the plant feeds itself. Once the water is no longer visible, the plant must be watered again.

Nice to know

If you want to pamper a Vriesea on a very hot day, take a spray bottle and spray the flower and the leaf. You will give it a little coolness, just like in the tropics. You can also put a cultivation pot in a bowl of water and evaporate the water around the plant. The bromelia’s leaves naturally get its moisture and nutrients from the air.

Guzmania is one of the easiest bromelias with a large rosette-shaped flower. You see them in the colors yellow, orange, red but beautiful pink and white varieties are also available these days.

Name: Guzmania

Origin mainly from Ecuador and Colombia.

Light: from light to very bright, never expose to direct sunlight.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Watering: once a week

Fertilization: not necessary

Care

Place the Guzmania in a well-lit area in the house away from direct afternoon sun. Give the plant water in the chalice, which is the heart of the plant from where the flower grows. From this heart, the plant feeds itself. Once the water is no longer visible, the plant should be watered again.

Nice to know

As soon as the Guzmania flower loses its color and becomes brown, it is slowly dying. Time has come to get a new one as a bromelia blossoms only once. It is however possible that you can see cuttings appear after blossoming. When you water this young plant and after two weeks plant it with its roots in its own pot, you can nurture it into a mature plant. This takes a year before the plant is ready to flower. Now, you can imitate nature. Put a ripe apple in the heart of the plant, cover the plant with a plastic bag and seal it. Let the apple ripen for three weeks in the plant. After eight to sixteen weeks, a new flower will emerge.

The Tillandsia is available in various shades of pink, orange and red. The leaves of most species of Tillandsia are narrow and have tapered ends. Most Tillandsia’s barely have roots because initially they grew on trees or rocks. They dislike too much water.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Nice to know 

From mid-May, bromelias can be put outside! Tillandsias particularly do well when placed outside. The plants are tropical and, as such, they do not like frost. Protect them and cover them well, particularly, in the first weeks. You can place them outside but not in full exposure to the sun. A spot in the shade is perfect.

This beautiful bromelia is available in many colors; white, red, red-orange and purple. If you are familiar with the Greek language by one look at the leaves you will understand why they are called Aechmea. That means lance point in Greek. Some species have a special blade design which gives the plant an extra ornamental value. There are also Aechemeas that surprise you with colored seed berries.

Name: Aechmea

Origin: mainly from Brazil around the Amazon.

Light: from light to very bright, never expose to direct sunlight.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Watering: Once a week

Fertilization:  not necessary

Care

Place the Aechmea in a well-lit area in the house away from direct afternoon sun. Give the plant water in the chalice which is the heart of the plant where the flower grows. From this heart, the plant feeds itself. Once the water is no longer visible the plant should be watered again.

Nice to know

Bromelias with thick leaves are happy in a dry environment and Bromelias with thin leaves prefer a somewhat more humid location. That makes an Aechmea do very well on a window sill as they can handle the central heating.

It is certainly the most famous among the bromelias but not known by this family name. Pineapple is the only bromelia with a delicious sweet edible fruit. This plant is also available as an ornamental plant. In that case, the fruits are a lot smaller and look like a mini pineapple growing in a Bromelia.

Origin: mainly from Brazil around the Amazon.

Light: from light to very bright, never expose to direct sunlight.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Watering: once a week

Fertilization: not necessary

Care

Nice to know 

The Pineapple is not grown for consumption but if you have patience and can wait until the fruit starts to turn orange and smell delicious then you can try taking a bite.

There is still a large group of specialties available such as the hanging tillandsia Usneoide, Nidularium, Billbergia and Cryptyantus and Multiflora. Quirky bromelias occur regularly in the tropics but are generally less grown as ornamental plants. The Multiflora is an exception. This is a special Vriesea with many drop-shaped flowers in shades of red and yellow-orange. The leaves are narrow and compact making a lovely bouquet among the bromelias and they therefore deserves extra attention under the specialties.

Name: Multiflora

Origin: Tropical regions in Central and South America.

Light: from light to very bright, never expose to direct sunlight.

Ideal temperature: 16-21 ° C

Watering: once a week

Fertilization: not necessary

Care

Place Bromelia in a well-lit area in the house away from direct afternoon sun. Give these plants water in the chalice which is the heart of the plant. From this heart, the plant feeds itself. Once the water is no longer visible, the plant must be watered again. On warm days, you can always refresh a bromelia with water from a spray bottle, like a tropical shower.

Nice to know

Are you interested in specialties? Make it known to your florist or garden center. The plants are often available, but are generally not often offered to consumers. It will be super fun when you show your broad knowledge on the Bromelias to the specialist.
