*Air plant only, cholla pot sold separately

An elegant air plant to have, Filifolia Tillandsia has its origin in Central America, between Mexico to Costa Rica. An absolute showstopper, the plant’s rosette shape is formed by thread-like needle-shaped leaves that spread out like a fountain. It belongs to the Bromeliaceae family, growing to about 15 cm in height and 20 cm in width. From within the green leaves, arrive the inflorescent stick bearing non-tubular white to lilac flowers about 2 cm long. The winter-dormant small-sized epiphyte grows slowly in semi-shaded areas. It demands good airflow and frequent watering.

The monocarpic Tillandsia filifolia is a slow-growing air plant.


Flowering

The Filifolia air plant can flower anytime throughout the year, but it blooms only once and dies after some time. Like other Tillandsias, the plant has an inflorescent filled with white to lilac bisexual flowers.


Watering and Feeding

Twice a week is fine. Once a month, let it soak in water for long hours. Fertilization may also be required once a month during the dormant season and every 15 days in summers.
