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.
The plants were so healthy when they arrived. The service from Andy was really great. I sent him an email with a question and he got straight back to me. Service you just don’t normally get from plant companies. Brilliant.
Very happy with the product and the service
I bought this plant for my sister’s 60th birthday present she was absolutely thrilled with it. Beautiful plant, lovely size, thank you.
Great service - plants arrived quickly and well packaged. Good size plants for the price as local garden centre charge much more. First time with air plants so if I’m successful I will probably be back for more.
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!
