Tillandsia purpurea grows terrestrially in the coastal deserts of Peru along with species like T. latifolia and T. paleaceae, in these conditions the plants survive for much of the year on coastal fog.
Purpurea is a beautiful species with soft, delicate, silvery, light green leaves. It produces lovely highly scented flowers that are purple and creamy white inside, similar to T. straminea.
This species is easy to grow in high light levels with quick drying times or very good air-movement.
On offer are flowering size plants.
A beautiful silvery leafed plant well worth including in anyone’s collection excellent quality as always from Andy, looking very much forward to its flowering and hoping to getting my plants outside this bank holiday weekend after the cool start to the year
Beautiful plant in excellent health. Couldn't be happier with the quality of this plant.
