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.
Lovely airplants, Well packaged.
This was in my second order from Andy and I was amazed to receive a beautiful clump of T. Butzii with an existing flower stem! This is my first experience of a flower stem on one of my air plants as I'm very new to collecting them, so I shall be more than excited to watch my new T. Butzii come into flower in the coming days and weeks. What a wonderful surprise this is from you Andy! Excellent value for money!
The clump conatained many healthy seedlings that I carefully separated and planted on a large piece of bark (40cm x 15cm) with plenty left over to plant elsewhere in my collection. Look forward to them growing and hopefully flowering next year.
If you want first class plants and service then please order from Andy’s plants ! Nothing is to much trouble and Andy really does go above and beyond.
We will be back again and again 😊
An excellent large clump, now the standout plant of my collection, really pleased with this butzii. Great service.
