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.
The plants arrived quickly and were in lovely condition. I was very pleased with the quality and will be ordering again.
Plant arrived very quickly and very safely packaged. Plant looks lovely and healthy, I just hope I don't kill this one with kindness!
Thank you Andy's air plants.
Good mature plant in excellent condition
This is my second Velickiana from Andy. My first one grew into such a beautiful plant, I wanted another. Such great service. Plants arrive really quickly, well packaged and obviously produced with love and care.
Excellent quality plant and fast delivery would be happy to buy from again
