About Gary

If you're looking for a pop of vibrant colour then Gary is your man! Originating from the Brazilian rainforest, this brightly coloured Guzmania is typically found growing on tropical forest floors but he will be just as happy growing in a brightly lit London home or office.

Details

Current height including plastic pot: 30-35cm; Pot width: 12cm

Please note that Gary is a one-time bloomer whose life span is typically 6-8 months however before that time, new shoots will appear, known as 'pups', which can be replanted into new pots and once established, will come into flower just as beautifully and vibrantly as Gary.

Likes

Sunshine so place in a brightly-lit position - he won't mind if it's not direct.

Dislikes

A soggy bottom so make sure you allow the compost to dry out between waterings.

Looking after this plant

Guzmanias are generally very low-maintenance plants and should be happy with a water once every 5-7 days in the spring and summer and once every 10-14 days in the autumn and winter.

Living with pets and children

Gary is non-toxic.
