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.
I have singles and small clumps/twins available.
I got a twin Tillandsia aeranthos a few months ago. It came with really clear instructions regarding watering and positioning and it is thriving! It now has a flower coming from both clumps and I am so excited. I would recommend airplants to any plant lover - I didn't realise I'd find them so rewarding! Very good service from Andy - I will buy again.
Andy's plants are just a joy. Delivery, quality and price are always top notch. However, my last order had exactly what i ordered - plus a couple of extra plants too!! I meant to email Andy to let him know and that it would be too difficult for me to send them back therefore he could charge my card accordingly......but I forgot. The extra plants seem happy to be here so I suppose that's the plus side to this sorry debacle. And they're only wee so I have forgiven myself, I hope Andy does too!!
Andy was really quick to send them, and they are beautiful, safely delivered and well cared for, will almost certainly come back for more!
Very healthy looking plant, in super condition, as with every plant I’ve ordered from Andy! Definitely recommended.
