Tillandsia Queen's Charm (ehlersiana x caput medusae)
Origins: Created by Pam Koide
Bloom: Short, compound inflorescence producing multiple pink to red bracts and purple tubular flowers
Light: Strong indirect light, partial 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 dry the center of the plant completely if you fully submerge it in water to avoid rotting
This hybrid is a great blend of two legendary species; it is very densely covered in trichomes like ehlersiana, and the leaves are long and wavy like caput. Grows larger than your typical caput, with a showy bloom that blends the two species well.
