The Guzmania houseplant care is easy, which adds to this plant’s popularity.  Place distilled or filtered water in the central cup of the plant and replace frequently to keep it from rotting. Guzmanias thrive in temperatures of at least 55 F. (13 C.) or higher. Because these are tropical plants, they benefit from high humidity. A light mist daily will keep your Guzmania looking its best.

Soaking Frequency: Every 2 weeks.

Depending on the size of your kokedama, fill a bowl, bucket or sink with room temperature water.

Place your kokedama in the water, plant side up. Push the moss ball down so that it is fully submerged and begins to absorb water. Allow to soak for 10-25 minutes, or until fully saturated with water.

Note: We use rainwater. If you use tap water, we recommend letting a bucket of water seat outside for at least 8 hours at daylight while the chlorine evaporates.


Guzmanias require low light and should be kept out of direct sunlight


Gusmanias get their nutrients from matter which falls on them from plants growing above. For this reason, it’s best to spray the fertilizer onto the foliage. You can use an all-purpose Orchid food (Orchids are epiphytes just like bromeliads) diluted to 1/2 strength or use a fertilizer formulated for air plants. The best time to feed is in the Spring or Summer every two weeks.
