ADD A PLANT POT

Holly is like a peacock! She is absolutely stunning and has all of her leaves on display. This is what makes her so popular! Green striped leaves with a tropical exotic flower. Make sure you enjoy her while she lasts. Her flower will naturally die after a fews months and she will give birth to pups before laying to rest herself. Everything has an ending so make it a happy one!

Lighting for your Vriesea

A brightly lit spot is perfect. East or West facing window is ideal. Make sure Holly doesn't get too much direct sun as this can give her a little bit of sunburn.


Watering your Vriesea

Holly is part of the Bromeliad family. She is slightly different to other houseplants. She absorbs water through her leaves and stem. At the bottom of her stem is her central rosette, also known as her 'Cup'. Fill up her cup 1/4 of the way with water and flush it out every month. (we're not joking, she actually has a cup). When her cup is empty leave it a few days before topping it back up. When you water also water the soil but make sure it dries out completely between watering. Under watering is better than over watering with Holly.

 

Humidity for your Vriesea

Holly loves humidity. Keep her away from any hot or cold draughts.


What Fertiliser should I use for my Vriesea

You can fertilise Holly in the Spring and Summer. Add a little bit of very diluted fertiliser to her cup every month.

 

Repotting your Vriesea

Holly has a very small root system. Her roots are mainly used as an anchor and not a way to soak up water. You probably won't have to repot Holly


Vriesea plant care Problems

  •  Her red flower will naturally die after a few months and she does have a relatively short life span of a few years before she will produce pups and naturally die.
