Origins: Found in Costa Rica by a team that included Dennis Cathcart, Chester Skotak, and Hiro Takizawa
Bloom: Short compound inflorescence with several yellow bracts producing purple tubular flowers. Upper foliage produces a nice yellow blush as well, contrary to the red color bulbosa typically produces
Light: Strong indirect or filtered light
Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours. Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 2 hours as necessary. Be sure to thoroughly dry base after soaking to avoid rotting
This is a really neat form of bulbosa collected by legends in the industry. Tillandsia bulbosa normally blushes red and produces red bracts, but this form replaces red with yellow! Very pretty, very eye catching in bloom. Make sure you keep it tagged because outside of bloom nearly impossible to distinguish from typical bulbosa!
