We got a Bromeliad plant, which is just gorgeous. Guzmania Bromeliads add significant intrigue, color and beauty to your Green Space. They have long, slender evergreen leaves that are topped by a single brilliant inflorescence of tongue-like petals. The bloom will be deep red, maroon, orange, pink, or yellow, or some combination thereof. Bromeliad flowers can last 3 to 6 months, but they typically flower just once. Fun Fact: The Guzmania genus is named after Anastasio Guzman, a Spanish pharmacist and naturalist who died in 1807. The roots are grown in the USA but the plant is native to South America.
We chose this plant because it is pet friendly and we have the dog and two crazy cats. I love love love the color of this plant. It adds such a pop to the house. And a house plant just adds something to the atmosphere, too. And during this time, when we are all spending more time at home, it helps to make us feel better. And naturally plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, so that is a healthy benefit. Plus, the hobby of caring for a plant is good for our wellbeing. And Lively Root has a lot of options to choose from. And my beautiful plant came carefully packaged and arrived safely for me to put right in the perfect spot in it's new home!
