T. Andreana Large

Thready, bright blue-green needles in a symmetrical globe or tumbleweed shape that is much denser than both Tillandsia filifolia and Tillandsia fuchsii. Native to Columbia and north-west Venezuela. Vibrant red flower spike contrasts well with the foliage which takes on a flamingo pink tinge when in bloom.

Tillandsia are epiphytes that live high in the branches of trees and far from any soil, gaining their common name of Air Plants. They thrive in bright indirect light, preferably close to an eastern or western window. We recommend watering all Tillandsia two to three times a week to establish a consistent watering schedule. Gently spray them in the sink or shower, first right side up, then upside-down. Allow them to drain upside-down for at least an hour before returning to their display location.
