Bromeliad Vriesea Multiflora Astrid You can’t get more salsa and samba than the Vriesea multiflora Astrid from Breasy. And those bizarre shapes? They look fake, but it really is ‘Design by Nature’.Vriesea multiflora Astrid is a houseplant that makes you realise that Mother Nature has her mad days too. It comes in blindingly bright colors such as red, orange, yellow, green, pink, purple and white, and in bizarre shapes such as long spikes, flattened spoons and broad feathers that grow out of a rosette of leaves. What we often think of as flowers are actually colored bracts. The real flowers are very small and not particularly spectacular. Like all bromeliads, Vriesea multiflora Astrid can also survive without soil, for example in a terrarium. The plant gets food and moisture from the air with tiny ‘mouths’ on the leaves. Vriesea is one of the stars of the South American tropical rain forest, where you can find more than 150 different species. The plant usually grows high up in the trees in order to get as much light as possible.

Nice to know

If you want to pamper a Vriesea Multiflora Astrid 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.
