Guzmania Viola Bromeliad
Growing a Bromeliad as a houseplant is easy and brings an interesting texture and color to the interior garden. The wide leaves are sword-shaped or scoop-like and grow around a central 'cup'. Water needs are easily achieved by filling a cup. Bromeliads like high humidity, so set the pot in a saucer of gravel filled partially with water.
