Exotic houseplant: Guzmania musaica

This plant is one of the most beautiful guzmanias (bromelias) ever: The so-called mosaic vase bromeliad comes from Central and South America. In nature she is found in mangrove and cloud forests, but in your home she will also do well in a pot with well drained substrate in a partially shaded spot. A member of the Bromeliaceae family, this epiphyte has tubular, bright yellow-green flowers and pink to red bracts in racemes. The long, narrow leaves are in a rosette and grow up to 20 cm. You should water moderately and spray with low-lime water at least once a week in summer.

Low-maintenance tropical houseplants: air plants

Air plants are exotic and easy to care for: They do not need soil for their growth, instead the roots absorb nutrients and humidity from the air. Plant lovers simply hang this plant in a container on the wall, no potting soil necessary. Regular misting or watering is important to keep the air plant moist - it should never be left dry for long. Once or twice a week is ideal. There is a large number of the so-called tillandsia, we present our tropical favorites here.

Tillandsia complanata

Tillandsia complanata, also known as complanata air plant, is one of the most intriguing epiphytic bromeliad species. Attention: In addition to the slender, elongated foliage, which is arranged in a fan-like formation, this air plant has pendent flower spikes in a bright red colour. This tropical plant is an ideal addition to any terrarium or hanging display. Tillandsia Complanata prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can damage the plant's delicate leaves.

Tillandsia tovarensis is also a species of flowering plant from the tillandsia genus and is native to South America.
