|About 64,4-77 ° F in summer, in winter – not below 50-53,6 ° F.|

|Humidity not less than 50% to 60%|
|Keep the soil slightly moist in summer, pour soft water at least once a week.|
Guzmania Lingulata prefer a sunny to the half-shady situation on peat and sand moist soil. They are hardy to hardiness zone 10. In summer the plants prefer protection from the hot midday sun. Water regularly. Keep the centre of the plant filled with water but allow the soil to dry out between each wetting. Their centres are kept full of water. They grow best in high humidity but tolerate drier air. Do not overwater them. Fertilizing helps them grow bigger, mature faster, and produce larger inflorescences. In spring cut offsets from the parent, but not before the offsets are 8cm (3 inches) long. Insert each offset in a 5-6cm (2-2.5 inch) pot of bromeliads mixture, keep it bright filtered light and water it moderately. When the offset is well rooted (in about six months) move it into a pot one size larger and treat it as a mature Guzmania
