The Scarlet Star is a popular variety of plants that can grow outdoors or indoors when attached to another plant, or in regular soil. These plants require high humidity and special watering techniques in order to keep them healthy.
Called Bromeliads, the key characteristics of these plants is that they can be potted or survive attached to a host plant without causing the host plant harm. Guzmania lingulata is a native of Middle and South America. It takes three to four years to mature to the blooming stage, growing leathery leaves in stacking layers as they mature. The root system is small and forms above the soil. They produce a single stunning bloom in a cup-like fashion once in their life time.
