Also known as T. brachycaulos abdita, this species colours up fantastically during its flowering stage.
Native to Mexico and Central America it grows epiphytically in dry forests and scrub lands.
This species is famous for being one of the most vivid and colourful Tillandsia's. The foliage turns intense red and then produces lovely purple, tubular flowers that contrast beautifully with the foliage.
It grows well in high light levels with corresponding more frequent watering.
My second purchase from Andy' Plants and again the beautiful plants arrived quickly in perfect condition. They're happy and healthy and have joined my growing collection. Well done Andy!
These were the best packaged and best quality plants I've ever ordered by mail. Each plant was labelled, and all four were carefully surrounded by tissue paper to protect them. Each plant was in perfect condition. An instruction / care leaflet was also enclosed. I'll definitely be buying more air plants from Andy!
Ordered from Andy having met him at a RHS show a couple of years ago. Very knowledgable and the plants are superb. Everything arrived carefully packaged, with comprehensive care instructions. Also had a lovely email thanking me for my order and with the offer of further advice if needed. Thanks Andy!
Wonderful healthy plant as always, I can't recommend Andy's air plants enough, really great stuff!
Never had any air plants and whilst they were slightly smaller than I had expected they arrived in excellent condition and are a good talking point - seem pretty easy to maintain and we orders several plants and will order more.
Well packaged and with good instructions too.
