Tillandsia delicata is a wonderful and rarely offered species. It is endemic (occuring no-where else) to the cloud forests of Mexico.
Tillandsia delicata has soft leaves densly covered in trichomes. It is similar in appearance to Tillandsi ionantha or T. x kolbii. It makes a protruding thick flower spike and long purple tubular flowers. The top of the plant and the flower spike turns bright red during the flowering process.
I have a few nice flowering size single rosettes for sale.
