Tillandsia rectifolia is a species that is called an introgressive hybrid, that is, it is a hybrid of T. ionantha and T. schiedeana that became so numerous in its native habitat that it is now deserving of being described as its own species.Tillandsia rectifolia has soft, fuzzy leaves and beautiful symmetry to it. Because it has T. ionantha as a parent, it blushes red, especially when blooming. Finally, this is one of those very few Tillys that have bicolored flowers, in this case white and astor violet.
Sun exposure: Bright filtered light.

Special note: A hardy and fast growing species.
