  • Vriesea Christiane belongs to the bromeliad family and is native to the lush rainforests of Central and South America. It was named after Christiane Ledger, daughter of the Belgian botanist and horticulturist, Charles Ledger.

    This bromeliad is renowned for its striking foliage. Its leaves form an elegant rosette with a central, trumpet-shaped bract that showcases vibrant and lasting colors. The bract has shades of red, pink, or even orange, adding a burst of tropical charm to your home.

    Like other bromeliads, Vriesea Christiane has a unique life cycle. It only produces a single flower throughout its entire life, which makes this flower even more special. When the flowering stage is done, it creates new plants called "pups." These pups sprout as new shoots from the base and can be used for propagation.

    Vriesea Christiane is a relatively easy-care plant, making it a good choice for most plant enthusiasts including beginners. Vriesea Christiane is compact and well-suited to indoor spaces. It typically remains relatively small, making it a perfect choice for tabletops, shelves, or as part of a larger plant arrangement.

  • Place your Vriesea Christiane in bright, indirect sunlight. It enjoys filtered light or partial shade. Avoid direct sun exposure, as it can scorch the leaves.

    Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent overwatering.

    A well-draining, acidic potting mix, such as one designed for bromeliads or orchids, works well. Repotting is generally not needed frequently.

    Maintain indoor temperatures between 65°F to 75°F for optimal growth. Protect it from drafts and temperature extremes. Vriesea Christiane thrives in moderate to high humidity levels (about 50%). Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain suitable moisture levels.

    Feed your plant with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

    Vriesea Christiane is considered non-toxic.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
