Tillandsia - Pringlei

Description: Tillandsia Pringlei was previously known as T. Utriculata f. Pringlei.  This plant is the most prolific clumping species we have encountered thus fat. It will produce many, many pups throughout its lifespan from the base of the plant. The foliage is thin and silver due to the large number of trichomes coating it's surface. The plant will produce a long inflorescence spike (10-15cm) with white, tubular flowers.

 

 

Position: They should receive bright, indirect sunlight. Indoors, an east or west facing window area is ideal. Outdoors under partially shaded conditions is fine but in the colder states protection from frost is required, so an undercover or indoors area is more appropriate.

 

 

Watering: As a general rule, a plant in a hot position will require watering every 2-3 days. In a dark, humid environment watering once per week can often be adequate. This can be achieved by misting or dunking the plant. If outdoors, a hose can be used. When dunking a plant, leave submerged in a bowl of water for 10-20 minutes before shaking off excess water. Air plants love to dry out completely between each watering and must never have water sitting at their base as this will cause the plant to rot.

 

 

Fertilisation: We recommend fertilising your Air Plants once a fortnight in the warmer months and once a month through winter. We sell Air Plant Fertiliser in our "Decor" section and this bottle can be diluted to create 1L of fertiliser.
