The Vriesea “Lacy” is a special member of the Vriesea family. Whereas most Vriesea’s have lance-shaped foliage that stands upright, the Lacy’s foliage actually hangs down. This salmon pink-coloured foliage in combination with the striking speckled leaves make the Vriesea ‘Lacy’ a beautiful decoration. This Vriesea looks best in a hanging pot, or in a normal pot on the edge of a table or cupboard. This way, the lance-shaped foliage can dangle downwards gracefully.
De Vriesea “Lacy” prefers a light spot, clear of direct sunlight. When watering this plant, it is especially important to make sure that there is always a layer of rainwater or lime-free water in the rosette. This is where the suction hairs and scales are located, with which the plant absorbs its moisture and nutrition. Keep the soil slightly moist from spring to autumn by regularly giving the plant small amounts of water. In the winter, the plant hardly needs any water, and the potting soil may dry up between waterings. De Vriesea prefers high humidity. It’s therefore best to spray the leaves regularly using rain water or lime-free water (preferably rain water!).

Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
