Bromeliad Vriesea Gigantea Nova
Bromeliad Vriesea Gigantea Nova

Bromeliad Vriesea Gigantea Nova, Features Spineless Foliage with Spectacular hue of Green with shades of light Silver.

The Vriesea gigantea 'Nova', also known as the giant Vriesea, is a stunning bromeliad species prized for its impressive size and vibrant spineless foliage. This remarkable cultivar features broad, arching leaves that form a central rosette, which can grow up to 2-3 feet high and wide. The leaves are typically glossy green with a silver and yellow tint and may develop a blush of pink or red near the base when exposed to bright light.

Its showy, long-lasting flower spike emerges from the center of the rosette, featuring bright yellow, orange, or red bracts that gradually open to reveal small, tubular flowers. The flowering period can last several months, adding a striking focal point to any indoor or outdoor space.

Vriesea gigantea 'Nova' is relatively low-maintenance, thrives in shaded areas and is sensitive to frost, requires occasional watering into the central cup of the rosette. It's important to use non-chlorinated water to avoid damaging the plant. Additionally, providing moderate humidity and maintaining a warm, stable environment will contribute to its overall health and appearance.

This striking bromeliad is an excellent choice for adding a touch of tropical elegance to interior spaces, and its impressive size and distinctive bloom make it a standout feature in any collection of ornamental plants.

PLANT BENEFITS AND KEY FEATURES

Bromeliad plants, considered by many as one of the most exotic and beautiful plants which naturally create color blends and variegation of colors like no other plant. The Bromeliad family of plants is very diverse, many known varieties of bromeliads grow wild throughout the rainforests of Central and South America, in trees as epiphytes, meaning they can grow without soil, Bromeliads can absorb most of their nutrition through their leaves, Many bromeliads are able to store water in the center section of the plant, known as the tank, this center structure is formed by their tightly overlapping leaves which act as a funnel allowing the water to drip into this section of the plant and also provide the needed nutrients. Bromeliads require very little water, about once per week, water in the center tank to allow the water to drain into the soil.

Care & Maintainance

HOW TO CARE FOR BROMELIAD PLANTS

Before purchasing a Bromeliad, read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and flourishing.

LIGHT - Outdoors Shade, Indoors bright to medium light.

WATER - Bromeliads are very drought tolerant, they retain water in the center reservoir, we suggest to utilize a soil probe initially to determine humidity levels and when to water, you can also feel the top inch on soil to the touch, if drying out go ahead and water your Bromeliad, once every 7-10 days should be sufficient.

HUMIDITY - Regular Misting is recommended, Many of our houseplants come from the tropics, where humidity is very high, generally the air in our homes is dry, occasional misting houseplants is a very simple and effective way to boost humidity, an easy solution to the risk of overwatering your plants. Always pay attention to the color and texture of the leaves on your plant. Generally Plants with brown or dry leaf tips will benefit from regular misting to keep the plant happy and thriving, preferably in the mornings to allow the foliage to completely dry out during the day.

PLACEMENT AND TEMPERATURE - Selecting the right location for your plant indoors or outdoors is very important, micro climates can affect the health of the plant, make sure the plant does not receive air draft from near by AC/Heating vents, or warm air if close to a freezer, the foliage will dehydrate faster than it can hydrate from moisture in the air or in the soil, eventually turning brown and dropping, when plants are properly watered and care for and still display signs of wilting or seem sad it may help to relocate the plant to a different area for brighter indirect light. Please note most tropical plants are from the tropics, proper moisture is required for their health and survival, we highly recommend to bring your tropical plants indoors when temperatures are expected below 45s during winter months or above 90 during summer months, extreme weather can severely damage the plant.

FERTILIZING – No need to fertilize right away, We fertilize our plants during the production phase with slow release fertilizer which can last an additional 2-3 months supplying residual nutrients to the plant. Once you do decide to fertilize You may use a fertilizer formulated for interior plants, preferably a slow release fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall base on label instructions.

PRUNING is not necessary, if left to grow naturally lower bottom leaves will gradually collapse and dry out, once they dry leaves can be pulled or remove to maintain the plant in its optimal appearance.

HOW TO PROPAGATE BROMELIADS - The easiest way to propagate Bromeliad plants is by way of separation of pups. Simply allow the new offsets to mature over 6 inches tall, cut off the stem close to the main trunk of the mother plant and place in soil, it will gradually root and provide you with a new free plant.

MAINTAINING Bromeliad is simple, they require little or no upkeep, they are disease and pests resistance which eliminates the need for spraying chemicals which can be very harsh to our environments.

INSECTS OR DESEASES - Here’s another plus, Bromeliad is not regularly affected by pests, however in the event that scale, mealy bugs, or mites are found to affect the plant, they can be controlled by applying horticultural neem oil that can be sprayed directly onto the insects, A second and third treatment, when using oils, will be necessary. Space out the sprays at 2 weeks intervals to break up the mealybug life cycle.
