The Vriesea “red chestnut” originates from the Central and South American rain forests. The plant is named after its Dutch discoverer, Prof. Dr. Hugo de Vries. Just like its colorful Bromeliad family, de Vriesea is an epiphyte. Epiphytes are plants that have no roots, but absorb nutrients through their leaves. In nature you will find these plants high up in trees, where they can enjoy sunlight and store rainwater in their rosette (tube of the plant). Generally, this rosette is filled with rainwater and other nutrients, providing the Vriesea with a constant source of nutrition. Therefore we also recommend watering this houseplant in its rosette, and make sure there’s always some water in there. This allows the plant to consume the water at its own pace.

Fun fact: In nature, poison frogs regularly use the Vriesea as a spot to leave their frog spawn. The Vriesea is therefore also called “maternity room” in Brazil. It is a popular gift to celebrate a new job, new house or birth.

The soft grey pot included with the Vriesea is of our own design. It is made from the natural material cement. The pot combines perfectly with this houseplant, and forms a stylish addition to your interior.

Plant care:
Water the plant in the calyx.
Place the plant in a light spot, but not in direct sunlight.
Room temperature.

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!

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.
Do you have questions about your plant? The Green lifestyle store team is more than happy to help!
