Tillandsia tectorum is one of the most exquisite species. The trichomes are so large and such a bright white! The inflorescence is purple with astor-violet blooms the whole of which contrasts well with the white, fuzzy leaves. Tillandsia tectorum likes to be watered in a drier climate, more than one would think.
