Tillandsia stricta is a common species in Eastern South America, from Venezuela to Northern Argentina where it grows as an epiphyte in dry to mesic (evenly moist) conditions. It has green, often grey/purple mottled leaves and a lovely flower spike with bright pink bracts and light purple flowers. It is popular amongst beginners for its ease of cultivation, and attractive flower spikes, it produces many pups (off-sets) and quickly grows in to an attractive clump.
This species likes medium to high light levels and regular misting with good air-movement.
Great little addition to my other air plant. Delivery was prompt and information on plant care, which came with the parcel, was very helpful. Very reasonably priced too. Thanks Andy, I’ll definitely use this website for any further air plant purchases.
The first ones we bought back in the summer are now in flower!
The Uni students loved them so much I had to buy some for their house
Very happy with all plants I have bought from Andy's Air Plants. They are good sized plants and always in perfect condition.
