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.
Nice clump of many small butzii plants which is growing suspended on my washing line. Attractive mottled leaves make this plant unique. Healthy plant recieved with no dead or brown growth.
Arrived in perfect condition and is growing nicely
Great plant. Very pleased.
