Tillandsia Mystic Trumpet (albertiana x xiphioides)
Origins: Manmade hybrid
Bloom: Short, simple inflorescence that barely exposes itself from the top layer of foliage. The flowers are pink/red in color, almost as if the red of albertiana and the white of xiphioides were mixed together on a paint palette
Light: Best in strong indirect light or filtered light
Ideal for: Outdoors
Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours. Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary.
Another wonderful Dimmitt hybrid in the mystic series, this one has a lovely pink flower and grey leaves. There is also a 'peach' form of mystic trumpet, a result of a different grower crossing the same seed and pollen parent but from a different region
