Soil type
Since Guzmania use their roots primarily to attach and stabilize the plant, they don?t need rich potting soil. However, they must have soil that drains well. Many experts recommend commercial cactus or orchid mix, as both drain well. You can also mix one-third each sphagnum moss, coconut coir or fir bark, and perlite or vermiculite for your pots.
Watering instructions
Always use rainwater, distilled water or filtered water for Bromeliads. Tap water often contains minerals as well as chlorine and fluoride. The water should be room temperature ? remember these plants are from the tropics. Water to keep soil moist in spring and summer, the growing period. Fill the plant?s ?tank? but drain frequently as well to prevent stagnant water. Allow soil to dry to two inches down between watering.

Room temperature
Bromeliads are tolerant plants that can survive in a variety of temperatures. Most of the bromeliads in horticulture prefer temperatures of 70-90F for days and 50-70F for nights. However, they can take even higher temperatures provided the humidity is increased. While they can also take temperatures down to freezing, they are happier if it doesn?t get below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Room position
Site the plant in dappled shade or bright, indirect light in a location protected from winds and temperature fluctuations.
Annual
No
Feeding instructions
Don?t give your guzmanias too much fertilizer, as it can make them leggy and decrease their vibrant colors. Choose a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer and use it at one-quarter to one-half strength every month in the growing period. At the end of summer, place slow-release fertilizer pellets around the base of the plants ? never in the plant?s central depression or ?tank.?
Flowering period
Mostly during summertime but plants are forced flowering so can be bought all year round.
