Tillandsia reichenbachii

Regular price $12.00 Sale

Origins: Argentina, Bolivia

Bloom: Long, simple inflorescence with purple in the margins of the bracts, giving way to large purple fragrant flowers that have a splash of white at the center of the petals

Light: Strong indirect and/or filtered light

Ideal for: Indoors/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

 

In the same complex as duratii, arhiza, and streptocarpa, this is a fragrant species with short, wavy, recurving leaves and beautiful purple flowers.  The clumps I have available are currently producing multiple bloom spikes, meaning it will be quite a show when it finally blooms.  Pretty hard and easy to care for, although it is pretty slow growing

 

Recently finished blooming; bloom spikes have been removed and pups are developing (pups are 3rd generation of clump)
