Common Name: Scarlet Star
Family Name: Bromeliaceae
Approximate Height: 16" - 24"
Light Requirements: Medium - High. Will do well in an east or west facing window. Avoid direct hot sun for prolonged periods of time. In winter, this plant will do well in a south facing window.
Water: water thoroughly and allow the soil to drain completely. allow the top 1" to dry out before watering again. many bromeliads will have a "tank" which is where the newest leaves come together to form a "cup" partially fill this "tank" with distilled water changing it regularly to avoid bacterial buildup/crown rot.
