This is a very beautiful species often confused with T. oaxacana and T. matudae. It has lovely soft, silver leaves and produces a strange thick pink, drooping flower spike that in turn produces a succession of lovely tubular purple flowers.
It is very easy to grow and in a few years will make lovely clumps of multiple flowering plants as you can see in the second photo.
Here is a large flowering size plant mounted on drift wood with Spanish Moss.
Beautiful air plants would recommend
I am delighted with my order from Andy- plants are in a very good health and presented in the most beautiful way on the wood decorated with thick spanish moss. Everything from the order to the delivery in the carefully packed box was faultless. Andy very helpfully included detailed instructions with the package and he was extremely helpful on the phone with his expert knowledge and patiently answering my questions. I am very grateful to him for inspiring me to try with air plants and am immensely pleased with my plants. I am eagerly looking forward to it flowering in the future.
From the easy order to the well packaged quick delivery, this whole process has been faultless. Then there’s the plants themselves, fantastic quality and look better than I expected with the major added bonus of the care sheet they came with to make sure I give these plants the best conditions to flourish.
I always thought air plants would be difficult to look after, but Andy provides detailed information on how to look after these beautiful plants, and to be fair after reading the information given it seems pretty simple! Hopefully this won’t be my only purchase. Sarah
