An incredible large growing species from Ecuador.
Tillandsia secunda can be grown epyphyticaly /mounted, or it can be grown in a pot with a fast draining mix. It has an incredible flower spike with large, deep purple flowers. The flower stem then produces pups (this is called vivpary) which can be grown on.
Tillandsia secunda grows very well here i find it is easy, quick growing (relatively) and produces large flower spikes readily which then go on to make many viviparous pups.
Here on offer are some good sized pups.
Great looking specimen, and a good little guide to growing them for a newbie like myself.
