Tillandsia aeranthos is an easy and rewarding species to grow.
Native to Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina from near sea level to several hundred meters altitude. It is known as the ‘Carnation of the sky’ by the Argentineans and is very popular with Hummingbirds that love the nectar. It grows into clumps of up to a dozen or more rosettes and is a regular and easy bloomer, flowering in the spring with lovely pink bracts and deep purple flowers.
It is easy to grow, given bright, filtered light and regular wetting and drying.
Very quick service, my plants arrived within a few days of placing the order which was impressive at this very difficult time. They were well packed with good care instructions, I have no previous experience with air plants so hopefully they will continue to stay healthy. Would recommend Andy's Air Plants
I bought three of these, and love them! Two have flowered within a couple of weeks. They arrived carefully wrapped in tissue paper in a cardboard box.
