This is beautiful plant was known as a variety of T. brachycaulos but is now i think believed to be a species in its own right. Tillandsia multiflora syn. T. brachycaulos var. multiflora.
It colors up very well with more pastel shades than the species. It then, as the name 'multiflora' suggests, produces many purple tubular flowers.
Its an easy species to grow with medium to high light levels and regular misting with good air-movement.
Here is a lovely large flowering size specimen mounted on drift wood with added Spanish Moss'.
Thank you so much for the wonderful arrangement which arrived today. It was beautifully packaged and travelled safely. The plants look healthy are are of a good size. They are a splendid addition to my indoor plant collection and may just be the start of a love affair between me and air plants!
Very pleased looks great
Beautifully packaged, so much bigger and better than I imagined, it was a gift for my mum who has a new found love for airplants and she absolutely loved it as did I!
Thank you Andy, for the wonderful selection of plants that you sent to me. They were much larger than expected and I am thrilled with the quality. They were packaged to perfection, all very well protected. Thank you so much, I will definitely be buying some more from you again.
I have never had airplants before, so I bought several different ones and am looking forward to seeing how they progress and when they will flower. All arrived in good order with comprehensive care instructions.
