Stunning and Tropical Scarlet Star Bromeliad

- Beautiful Scarlet Flower
- Glossy Deep Green Bracts
- Tropical Indoor Decoration
Has taking a trip to the Amazon rain forest been a bucket list item? Maybe you just love the look of tall the exotic plants? Either way, the Scarlet Star Bromeliad (Guzmania lingulata ‘Scarlet Star’) is the perfect way to add a bit of South America to your household.
The layers of glossy green bracts flaring out from the center create a lovely frame for the stunning flower that forms in the middle!
The flower of this specimen is the reason for its name. It forms a wide and deep cup of multiple layers of bracts. The bloom begins a deep green color and then fades to yellow before settling in its final color of scarlet red.
When looking at the flower from above, it’s easy to see where this Bromeliad gets its name. The flower looks just like a scarlet star nestled in a bed of rich green! The flower bracts are showy for as long as 5 months.
Like many houseplants, the Scarlet Star loves warmer temperatures. It will continue to grow all year long when kept somewhere between 65 and 80 degrees.
Deciding where to place this little beauty in your house is relatively easy. It appreciates bright to low light, meaning just about anywhere that gets sun is the perfect spot! Place it on your dining room table or in a living room window where it can glisten in the afternoon sun.
Watering may be a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find the process extremely rewarding. Keep the roots misted daily and the soil wet, but never soggy. You’ll also want to make sure there is always one to two inches of water in the flower cup.
Owning and growing a Scarlet Star Bromeliad is rewarding in more ways than one. Not only will you feel that sense of accomplishment when its beautiful flower blooms, but you’ll also have an incredibly unique tropical decoration for your house! Order one today!
