Tillandsia duratii is an incredible species from Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Southern Brazil.
It has long arching leaves that curl back to help it support itself in tress and scrub thickets. It can vary in size and some plants or clumps can become very large. The flower spike is very long and has many lovely lilac to dark purple, heavily scented flowers.
It is easy to grow in high light levels with regular light misting and good air-movement.
I have a few lovely plants available.
Similar to my mature T. straminea but with an attractive 'skirt' of curly whorls. Looking forward to some scented flowers in due course.
