Dura

Tillandsia dura is a small, compact species that is uncommon in cultivation.  The leaves can vary from a more traditional green but they can often color toward bronze with darker sheaths which, on a small scale, makes the plant attractive and interesting.  The inflorescence is simple (a single spike) and bright red like that of the very green leaved species, T. caulescens. The flowers are a light mauve.
