Tillandsia argentea is the most wonderful little air plant. Its leaves are fine and silver and arranged like a sea urchin. It is also very easy to grow and clumps in just a few seasons. It makes nice long flower spikes with bright red bracts and purple flowers with bright yellow pollen. Stunning and delicate.
This species is a personal favorite. It enjoys bright to full sun and has to have a regiular misting and good air-movement so as not to stay wet constantly.
