Tillandsia bulbosa is a unique species that has a bulbous shape.
It has a wide distribution in the wild, from Mexico and the West Indies, through central America, Ecuador and Northern Brazil.
In the wild this species has a symbiotic association with ants which can live in the leaf base cavities, as does several other species like seleriana, butzii and others.
This species is easy to grow and eventually makes a nice clump. It likes medium light levels and regular wetting. It is tolerant higher humidity and less air movement, making it suitable for bathrooms and terrariums.
Arrived in great condition, really healthy, well packaged!
I'm so happy with this Tillandsia Bulbosa. It's a gorgeous little strong plant and is so strikingly different to the other plants in my collection. I'm impressed by the quality of my purchase and will definitely soon be back to place another order with Andy.
The bulbosas are so cute! Shipping took about 2 weeks because of delays in my country, but the plants survived and seem to be doing fine. I got a butzii as a gift, and it has a pup! Thanks, will shop again!
