A small lithophytic, clustering plant to about 2 inches, with short, stiff and rather succulent, dark gray leaves. Widely flaring, half inch pink flowers are borne on a short scape in small clusters. We’ve seen grapefruit sized clusters of this species growing on rocky cliffs in Bolivia, covered with pink flowers. In cultivation it enjoys growing mounted and kept in bright light with good air circulation. Allow to dry quickly after watering.
Tillandsia 'Impression Perfection'
A nautral hybrid of (albida x concolor) named and registered by Bill Timm. This is a real nice hybrid that shows characteristics of both parent plants. The foliage is silvery, in an open rosette with leaves that recurve and twist. It is not caulescent like albida. The inflorescence resembles the concolor parent with yellowish branches in upright candelabra form, and pink flowers.
A bizarre Tillandsia from Mexico, certainly the most unusual of the proliferating Tillandsias. The plants are long and thin, with stiff gray leaves ending in a tight curl. It is in nearly a constant state of bloom, producing an offset from the tip of the spike and additional ones from the base of the mother plant. Eventually, will form huge clusters of intertwined plants that hang down in a cascade. A true oddity and easy to grow.
Tillandsia 'Spring Frost'
A natural hybrid of (schiedeana x caput-medusae). Resembling both parents, it has a semi-bulbous base like that of caput-medusae, but with straight leaves of schiedeana. The color is white lepidote with a branched red to rarely green inflorescence, producing bi-colored flowers.
