Tillandsia - Borumba


A cultivar of (baileyi x ionantha ‘Druid’) by Margaret Paterson.  Similar to ‘Califano’ but because the ionantha parent is the ‘Druid’ form, a yellow blushing cultivar, it does not seem to blush as red as ‘Califano’, though it does not blush yellow either. 

A small grower to about 10cm tall with a slightly bulbous base and narrow, flaring leaves.  The plant is silvery with trichomes and blushes pinkish at anthesis with a short pink inflorescence and blue flowers.  Will form a large clump in time.

Sun exposure: Bright filtered light indoors or undercover outdoors.

Water requirement: Low–moderate.
Maintenance: Low.

Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape depending on the season. Flowering plants are sent when available.
