So rare we don't know when we will have the chance to sell these again! The Tillandsia Complanata is grown from seed, does not self propagate or pup like traditional air plants which makes them much harder to come by. These grow large and are the only Tillandsia that will bloom continuously, unlike other air plants. It can have many red orange spike blooms at a time. The leaves are green and waxy with a shape like traditional bromeliads, without the soil. It is normal for these plants to have some blemishes on their leaves. As they grow larger the bottom leaves will die off allowing the upper portion of the plant to grow larger.
These are hard to find Tillandsia grown in small batches.
Approximately 6+ Inches tall and 9+ inches wide.
These plants are low maintenance, making them a great choice for people who are new to indoor plants.
They need regular daily indirect or filtered sunlight (so fine for desks, shelves, bathrooms or bedrooms). A weekly water is all they require - although you can always give them a mist in between if they look a little dry.
Air plants prefer regular air circulation, so we suggest open terrariums rather than the kind with lids.
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!
