Narrowly upright, with stout, pointy, frosted green leaves that peel outward and turn rose to scarlet when blooming begins. Commonly called the Blushing Bride Air Plant, this species is native to Central America and Mexico and has naturalized in southern Florida. The cultivar has a velvety silver sheen that complements the bright green of the leaves; short purple blooms nestle within the foliage.
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.
