This is beautiful plant was known as a variety of T. brachycaulos but is now i think believed to be a species in its own right. Tillandsia multiflora syn. T. brachycaulos var. multiflora.
It colors up very well with more pastel shades than the species. It then, as the name 'multiflora' suggests, produces many purple tubular flowers.
Its an easy species to grow with medium to high light levels and regular misting with good air-movement.
Here is a lovely large flowering size specimen mounted on drift wood with added Spanish Moss'.
Very happy with my purchase from Andy’s Air Plants. Andy was also really helpful with advice on choosing and caring for the plants. Would definitely recommend.
My order arrived very quickly was well packedged and arrived in excellent condition andy kept me informed when posted and added a note answering my question customer services are second to none and as for the plant its outstanding he adds a personel touch by keeping informed and als a thank you note my daughter has seen it so now i have to buy another one for her well worth the money thanks very much andy
Just when you think that Andy’s air plants surely cannot get better, they keep on surprising you.My best purchase yet!
A new home present to my friend and her exact words are “I didn’t know these existed and So cool”. It really looks lovely and a very interesting plant to have it in the house or in the garden. The communication from Andy re:updates and thanking email to the customer was a great personal touch.
My order arrived really quickly and the plant was in such good condition, wrapped and protected well. I have had air plants before but this came with clear instructions about position and care which will make such a difference and would be really useful if you had never had one in the past.
I would definitely recommend this company and will be buying from them in the future.
