Thick silver leaves that form in a curling waterfall shape with maturity. Base is bulbous. Multi branched burgundy/red inflorescence bloom in an upright form. A beautiful and unusual Tillandsia. Rare in cultivation. Collectors plant.
Photos with bloom are for reference only. Plants are shipped green but when available we will ship with blush or bloom. The plant you receive may be straighter or curlier depending on maturity of individual plant.
Tillandsia/Air Plants need regular daily indirect or filtered sunlight and good air circulation. A weekly water is all they require - although you can always give them an additional watering or mist in between if they look a little dry.
We stock an air plant fertilizer which is ideal for this plant - check out the 'Supplies' section of our shop to see more. We also have a wide range of fillers which you can use as a base in any plant pot you might use. Orchid bark is a great choice for this!
