Meet the plant

The most striking thing about the Guzmania Rockyflower are the brightly coloured bracts that grow from a beautiful rosette and form an extraordinary bulb or a clump together. Those bracts have fantastic colors: bright red, deep orange, yellow, green, pink, purple, white or bicolor.

Nice to know

A Bromeliad only flowers once, but it is common after flowering for cuttings to appear next to the Bromeliad. Let these grow until they are as high as half of the mother plant. Water the new plants in the central calyx and plant them in their own pot complete with their roots after two weeks. This is how to grow it into an adult plant. If the small plants do not yet have any roots, you can put their base in water until a root becomes visible. It takes one year before the plant is ready to flower. Then, mimic nature... Place a piece of ripe apple in the heart of the plant, cover the plant with a plastic bag and seal it. Let the apple ripen inside of the plant for three weeks. After eight to sixteen weeks, a new flower will emerge!

Place the Rockyflower 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.
