The striking blooms of 'Splenriet' are like flaming orange-red swords rising from large, bold rosettes of striped green leaves.
The Vriesea is a very easy houseplant that requires little or no maintenance. Water regularly, keeping the soil moist at all times. They like a little water in the centre of the plant as well as the soil. You will notice that the water remains in the funnel-shaped bracts, this is good. Preferably use either rain water or warm water, do not use water containing lime. Plant food is unnecessary. The ideal temperature should be between 16-24 degrees centigrade for this bromeliad.
