Tillandsia karwinskiana is a great little species that grows on cliff faces in Mexico. It has succulent, silver trichome covered leaves. The flower spike is bright red and the bracts and flowers are yellow. Its very easy to grow, quite prolific making lots of pups. It likes high light levels and regular light misting.
Here is one plant not in flower.
Another great and unique plant and a very welcome addition to my collection.
Lovely, strong and healthy air plant. Particularly like the red markings to some of the leaves, which gives it an added dimension. Nice visible trichomes as well. Already has a couple of pups!
