Tillandsia native of Central America
Tillandsia native of Central America, where it grows at low elevations. The name literally means "with twisted leaves" - in fact, when the plant is grown in low humidity levels, the eaves are very tortuous, such as Tillandsia xerographica. It is even more impressive since the species is large. The flower is a work of art, the development of several pods that show a gradation from bright red to silvery green. A magnificent plant. Grow horizontally to keep the pseudobulbs from rotting due to the accumulation of water inside.
