Tillandsia streptocarpa grows epiphytically in woods or saxicolously on rocks in Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil.
It is similar in appearance to T. duratii but is smaller in size. It has lovely soft velvety leaves and an long, graceful flower stem with beautifully scented purple flowers. It makes a nice multi flowering clump in time.
This species likes high light levels or full sun with regular misting and good air-movement.
At the moment i have a couple of very large flowering size plants.
