Tillandsia intermedia x paucifolia

Regular price $8.00 Sale

Origins: Manmade hybrid

Bloom: Medium length compound inflorescence with red hues in the bracts and purple tubular flowers.  Some plants have shown the vivaparous tendencies of the intermedia parentage but not all

Ideal for: Indoors/Outdoors

Light: Strong indirect light 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. 

This is a cool hybrid with distinguishing characteristics of each parent.  It is long and slender as both parents are, but it is curly like intermedia and densely covered with trichomes like paucifolia.  When less hydrated, the curls are very exaggerated.  I have occasionally seen this plant produce vivaparous pups,but not every one is guaranteed to do that.
