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.
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.
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.
This plant only needs some water in its heart & it blooms for 3 months.
