A clone of the standard Streptophylla cultivated to produce a red blush when grown in bright light. Curly, twisted, wide, fuzzy leaves that tend to curl under. This can be achieved by less watering. To have them stretch out, water generously and more frequently. These produce a large, pink stunning bloom when mature. Extremely Rare in cultivation. Native to Brazil. Collectors plant.
Photos with bloom are for reference only. Plants are shipped green but when available we will ship with blush or bloom.
*Please Note* This clone looks very similar to the standard Streptophylla. The price is reflective of the red coloring that has been cultivated in this plant (when grown in high light) and is for collectors. If you are are interested in purchasing this plant for its curly nature only you may want to consider our listing for Tillandsia Streptophylla.
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!
