Tillandsia butzii from Mexico and through Central America to Panama, is an easy and rewarding species to grow.
It has attractive, mottled, bulbous leaf bases and long twisting green leaves. The flower spike is quite long and has red bracts with purple flowers. This species can quickly grow into an impressive clump.
Tillandsia butzii grows in similar conditions to other green leafed species such as T. filifolia and T. albertiana, enjoying mid to low light levels and plenty of regular moisture.
This is possibly my favorite species, and one of the first i ever had in my collection.
I wasn’t sure about this one; it looked - well, clumpy! - on the website compared to the airy look of most of the other varieties. But one does need contrasts… and I’m thrilled with it. It’s a graceful, healthy little plant, in elegant shades of dark green splashed with purple, and has taken up residence over the kitchen sink, where it looks as if it’s dancing on the air, and is happily producing new leaves and enjoying a fair bit of attention. Highly recommended!
The Butzii I bought from Andy is perfect I'm really happy with my purchase. The Butzii looks stronger abd healthier than the one I had to replace. I recommend Andy's plants
This is our first time buying Air plants. Andy was very helpful in answering my emails and suggesting which plants would best suit our project. The plants were carefully packaged and are now up in a frame. We will need more plants in the future and I would definitely buy them from Andy.
What an interesting looking airplant. Andy very kindly sent me this as a gift along with my order. It is a really beautiful plant and I am always delighted with the care that Andy packages, sends and looks after his plants. I hope I can do it justice.
Every order from Andy has provided magnificent plants, the quality is just superb! Thank you and I will be ordering again.
