Tillandsia recurvifolia is justifiably famous because of the brilliant pink bloom it produces. Many years ago in Paraguay, while in the Great Chaco, a vast expense of dry scrubbiness for much of the year, you could see the bright bloom of a Tillandsia recurvifolia from 200 meters away! It is easy to grow but sensitive to salts (alkaline water).
This one is easier to grow outdoors. If you have it inside, don't mist it and water it with "good" water. The current name supercedes the name by which it was known for many years, T. meridionalis.
Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape depending on the season. Flowering plants are sent when available.
