Growing Guzmania Plants In My Garden.

We were visiting a friend one morning and before we left, my friend passed some plants cuttings to me. Among the plants cuttings were 2 small Guzmania plants. I was very happy to receive the cuttings, especially the Guzmania plants. My Guzmania plants were planted in 2 separate pots.

Guzmania twins, Plant A & B at Day 1 in my garden.
When I brought the 2 plants home, I temporary planted them in recycled polystyrene cups. 
Plant A & B at 4th months
The plants seemed to be growing very slowly even after being transferred to bigger pots.
9th months
Plant A growing more leaves.

The colour of the flower deepened to orangey red.

Plant A at 12th month
Plant A took exactly 1 year to show off its 1st bloom!

The flower of Plant A is red.
This photo was taken under the shade of an umbrella! Lol!
Plant B at 12th month
The fading flower.
Plant B at about 14th month.
I found plant B growing baby plants from its sides at about 12th month.
After re-positioning some of the plants in my garden, I shifted the Guzmania plants to a more shady place. Now their leaves are greener. I noticed they look healthier and happier under the shade.
I saw this plant in the plant nursery and the leaves were so green and healthy.
Found this unique flower in the same nursery.
