This hybrid is crossed between a Flabelata Rubra (which blushes a deep red and produces multiple red bracts/blooms) and a Brachycaulus Multiflora. Both are known for their deep green foliage, red and purple blooms. This plant is hardy with large, lush, waxy leaves. All of our plants ship green/not in bloom however, when available, we will ship blushing or blooming.
These are hard to find Tillandsia grown in small batches.
Tillandsia are low maintenance, making them a great choice for people who are new to indoor plants and for collectors alike.
They need regular, daily, indirect or filtered sunlight (so fine for desks, shelves, bathrooms or bedrooms). A weekly soak or mist is all they require - although you can always give them a little drink in between if they look thirsty or dry.
Air plants prefer regular air circulation, so if you choose to use them in a terrarium we suggest open terrariums rather than the kind with lids.
We stock an air plant fertilizer which is ideal for this plant - check out our 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!
