Tillandsia caerulea v. major. Caerulea meaning sky blue, a beautiful and elegant species from dry forests in Peru and Ecuador.
It branches and grows into an attractive clump, has lovely foliage finely dusted with trichomes and produces lovely long flower spikes with highly scented, blue flowers.
It is easy to grow given high light levels or full sun, misted regularly and with good air-movement. Plants offered may or may not be in bud.
Tillandsia caerulea v. major is much larger in all parts than the type species. And so a bigger flower must mean even more of that delicious scent that you get from this wonderful airplant.
I ended up having two specimens in the box! Plants are well cared for. Andy must be a true botanist.
I am thrilled with the plant it is a great size and very healthy. Andy sent full instructions on how to look after it. I would definitely recommend Andys Airplants to anyone interested in starting a collection and I will be going back to him to buy more.
Absolutely 1st class all three were mounted beautifully and packaged really well arriving in good time. We couldn't be more pleased and the largest one has already flowered many thanks Andy will definitely recommend you.
Excellent quality air plants, look very good
