Tillandsia butzii

Regular price $5.00 Sale

Origins: Mexico, Central America

Bloom: Red inflorescence and bracts with purple tubular flowers

Ideal for: Outdoors

Light: Adaptable, best in indirect light

Water: Spray or dunk once a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Set on side or put somewhere with good air flow to ensure moisture doesn't get trapped in the large bulbous base, causing the plant to rot. Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary

 

Butzii is a myrmecophyte, meaning its large bulbous base can act as a space for ants and other small critters to colonize.  Butzii can be grown in any direction, so get creative with how you display it! These plants can adapt to a wide range of conditions; they prefer indirect light and more frequent moisture as they are native to rainforest-like environments.
