One of my all time favorites because it is so attarctive and easy to grow! Tillandsia velickiana is often confused with T. oaxacana and T. matudae. It used to be called fieldhofii and is very often sold as T. oaxacana, its hard to keep up sometimes.
It has lovely soft, silver leaves and produces a thick, deep pink, drooping flower spike that produces a succession of lovely large tubular purple flowers.
Tillandsia velickiana likes bright light to full sun, it is a water demanding plant and the best indicator of watering needs in your plant in your colIection. The leaves will curl inwards from the edges if the plant is not getting a regular or thorough enough watering. It is very easy to grow and in a few years will make lovely clumps of multiple flowering plants.
I have lovely small and large flowering size plants available.
