Air Plant Holder | Tillandsia 'Brachycaulos' | Air Plant Brachycaulos| Tillandsia Planter
The handsome Tillandsia Brachycaulos may seem somewhat tame compared to some more bizarre air plants, but just wait until it flares into a vibrant cherry red, preparatory to blooming! As easy to grow as can be - we have slipped the base of an air plant brachycaulos into a ceramic white egg vase, for you to enjoy anywhere! Suitable for hanging, or happy to sit on its flat bottom on a book shelf or desk. Enjoy
Tillandsia is the largest genus of the bromeliad family (which includes pineapples!) and all are native to the new world. Commonly known as air plants, these botanical curiosities can be found in jungles, rain forests or deserts - from sea level to high mountain regions, and increasingly in homes and offices where their low-maintenance and intriguing shapes are hugely appealing. Though prized for their general structure, air plants do bloom, and frequently change coloring throughout the year in response the biological cues.
Apart from the astonishing array of forms and colors, what sets air plants apart is their reliance on water and food that can be absorbed through their leaves - roots are used only to anchor themselves in place. This characteristic qualifies them as epiphytes, and lends them to creative mounting for spectacular display. Your tillandsia can be made happy indoors or out - simply provide bright, filtered sunlight (or artificial lighting), protect from frost, and provide periodic misting, or even emersion to meet their need for water.
