Tillandsia Fireworks (xerographica x roland-gosselinii)
Origins: Mark Dimmitt hybrid
Bloom: Long, compound inflorescence with a red/orange stem and bracts that range from red to yellow. Produces pale purple tubular flowers
Light: Strong indirect or filtered light, some direct light okay
Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours. Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary. Be sure to thoroughly dry plant after a soak to avoid rot
Another legendary Dimmitt hybrid that truly puts on a "Fireworks" show when in bloom. This plant has a beautiful shape; a nice, open rosette with stiff grey leaves that gently recurve. Plant can produce and hold a nice red/pink blush grown in strong light. Both parents can be cold sensitive but I've had better success with this plant than either of the parents. Just goes to show that sometimes two things are better together than apart!
