Introducing Tillandsia bulbosa. You can call me Twisty! I display twisted, tentacle-like leaves that sit on my bulbous base. My leaves are approximately 3-4” long and I’m super happy as a houseplant in any room with a window. Please keep me in a place that is at least 50 degrees F as I don’t like to be cold. You will covet me because I am easy to care for and display. Evidence to this is that I do not require any soil to survive. In the wild, I would attach myself to a rock, tree or shrubbery. In your home, simply place me on a desk, table, or terrarium. Get creative!
I’m gorgeous year-round and when I am digging my surroundings, I will reward you with a spectacular red, branched bloom with purple tubular flowers. Just because I am an Air Plant doesn’t mean that I can live on air alone. I need a good soak in water every 7-10 days. BTW, currently I am homeless so please consider adopting me.
None of our Tillandsia are harvested from the wild! They are all self-propagated in a nursery environment.
