Tillandsia bulbosa is a unique species that has a bulbous shape.
It has a wide distribution in the wild, from Mexico and the West Indies, through central America, Ecuador and Northern Brazil.
In the wild this species has a symbiotic association with ants which can live in the leaf base cavities, as does several other species like seleriana, butzii and others.
This species is easy to grow and eventually makes a nice clump. It likes medium light levels and regular wetting. It is tolerant higher humidity and less air movement, making it suitable for bathrooms and terrariums.
This plant, mounted on drift wood is 'in bud'.
Really pleased with my bulbosa on drift wood which came with some lovely moss too. Found a spot for this in the bathroom and it's doing really well and already has grown a little. Andy's air plants are much better quality than I've seen in any garden centres.
I was very satisfied with my purchase. The parcel was well packaged and it arrived promptly. The plants are pretty and healthy and I've even received some Spanish moss alongside it. Highly recommend ordering from Andy!
