Vriesea Astrid is quite the elegant name and this houseplant certainly lives up to it. It flowers for three to six months of the year, and its blooms are spectacular.

There are 250 varieties of Vriesea and this plant has origins in south and central America. It's an epiphyte in its native habitat, which means that despite its tendency to grow on other plants, it doesn't harm them in the process.

This is a tropical plant so it will appreciate humidity and misting in order to provide moisture to the foliage. It's very easy to look after, making it ideal for new plant parents.

Note, may have yellow variegation.

Jo's Top Tip

The Vriesea Astrid will do well near a window that's eastern or western - just be careful to avoid direct sunlight as this can burn its leaves.

Does not come with decorative pot.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
