Tillandsia albertiana is a wonderful and easy species to grow.
It has a limited distribution in North West Argentina on rocks faces in damp areas along mountain streams shaded from full sun.
This species has a lovely shape with distichous or mirrored leaf pattern, similar to species like myosura or caliginosa. The most beautiful thing about albertiana is its very large bright Red flowers that contrast perfectly with the lush mid green foliage.
It is one of the hardier (cold tolerant) species. It loves a damp but airy environment away from full mid day sun.

Really pleased with both plants. Delivered efficiently. Well packaged. A little smaller than I thought. Still doing well and thinking of buying more.
Amazing service.I rang Andy for advice as had never purchased an air plant before. He couldnt have been more helpful.Arrived promptly and in very good packaging. Air plant was in tip top condition. I only hope my daughter doesn't kill it! Will def be using Andy again.I know my daughter in law would love one and so would I .
