Item details

Tillandsia Brachycaulos on TiTillandsia brachycaulos is native to Mexico, Central America, and Venezuela.  It reaches about 3-5” tall and has fairly thick, wide leaves compared to other Tillandsias that form an opening outward crown shape.  As the plant ages, the leaves will tend to get more thin at the tips and more whispy.  When they are nearing bloom time, the leaves of the entire plant turn red before they produce their bright, purple-blue flowers.  This makes them one of the more colorful Tillandsias out there!  They tend to easily form clumps.   
 
Commonly known as an “air plant”, Tillandsias are specialized bromeliads that grow attached to trees high up in the canopy of the forest.  Therefore, they have adapted to being rained on and then quickly drying off from the abundant airflow.  Since they are an epiphyte, they do not grow in soil and receive their nutrients from light and water.  Because of this, they’ve steadily risen in popularity over the past few decades due to their ease of care and exotic appearance.  They should never have long-term standing water on their leaves and have moderate to high lighting needs - they cannot tolerate low lighting and will perish.  In general, they are considered slow growers.  Being a bromeliad, they will form clumps consisting of the mother plant surrounded by “pups”, or younger plants that grow off of the mother plant for reproduction.ger Clam Sea Shell 3" to 4" Hand Made for Wall.
