I love when my house plants start to bloom, here's my photo and some info about Guzmania:
This member of the pineapple family has stiff glossy green, toothed foliage arranged in an upright vase shape. A shoot with colorful bracts arises from the center of the vase. The bright blooms may remain attractive for up to six months. Guzmania likes warm temperatures during its growth cycle, but bracts will last longer if you keep the plant cool while it is in bloom.
Its colorful red, orange, yellow, or purple flower bracts look very tropical and exotic. It's a great conversation piece.
Growing Conditions: Bright light; 65-80 degrees F., 60-65 degrees F. in winter; keep soil moderately dry, but water in the vase
Size: To 3 feet tall and wide
