Description: Vrieseas are very popular for their spectacular and long-lasting flower spikes. The Vrieseas that don't produce showy flower spikes usually have interesting foliage. It is rare that a Vriesea would have both unique foliage and a distinct flower spike. Watering takes place directly into the cup in the center of the flower, top off when the cup is dry, allowing the plant to easily take a drink without overwatering. These plants require bright light without direct sun exposure to the leaves, or they'll surely burn.
