(One of the parent crosses, harrisii, is on CITES)
This is a natural hybrid of (capitata x harrisii) from Guatemala. An open rosette with white lepidote foliage that blushes pink in bloom to over 12 inches across. Blue flowers. Very attractive and long lasting.
Tillandsia aeranthos v. aemula
If you like Till. aeranthos, you’ll love the variety aemula! Like a giant-growing form of the species, it is a very handsome and hardy plant from Southern Brazil. Somewhat more caulescent than the typical form, it has purplish-tinted foliage on a stem up to 12 inches long. The inflorescence is well exerted, about 6 inches long, with deep rose-colored bracts and deep blue flowers. Forms large clumps eventually, and can be grown mounted or just hanging on a string.
This species of Mexican and Central American forms a 6 inch open rosette of gray-green leaves which flush vivid red when in bloom. Flowers are blue. A lovely, easy to grow, all-time-favorite. An easy growing, sub-mesic plant that grows well when mounted and kept in moderate light and humidity.
A rare caulescent species from Sumidero Canyon in Chiapas, Mexico, where it covers the canyon walls in some places, by the thousands. Tillandsia vanhyningiihas short thick leaves on a 3 to 6 inch stem and blushes a peach color when in bloom and forms large cascading clusters. The plant grows with a long stem that forms many adventitious offsets which can be removed and grown or left to form a large cluster. Very easy to grow, bright and airy.
Tillandsia 'Candy Corn'
This hybrid of (leonamiana x ixioides) is pretty much what you’d expect of this cross. An open rosette of narrow, arching, stiff leaves of silvery gray and an inflorescence that is tall and slender with a few short branches at the top, silver dusted orange bracts and yellow flowers. Easy, prolific and showy.
Tillandsia 'Perfectly Peachy'
A cultivar of (capitata ‘Peach’ x concolor). A handsome, medium sized plant with an open rosette shape of fairly stiff, recurving, channeled, gray leaves. The inflorescence is about 12 inches tall, with long bracts and a clustered head of short, shiny, reddish branches and beautiful blue flowers. The upper part of the plant blushes peach color at anthesis.
A hybrid of (tricolor x flabellata) made many years ago (before 1954) by Walter Richter in Germany and released in the U.S. by Mulford Foster. In spite of its long time in cultivation, it is nonetheless quite uncommon in collections. The cross takes on the best characteristics of both parents with fairly stiff, narrow, green leaves and a well-branched reddish orange inflorescence. Grows equally well potted or mounted. Tillandsia ‘Oeseriana’ (tricolor x flabellata) A hybrid made many years ago in Europe, it is nonetheless quite uncommon in cultivation. The cross takes on the best characteristics of both parents with fairly stiff, narrow, green leaves and a well-branched reddish orange inflorescence.
Tillandsia aeranthos 'Major'
Basically this species looks like a larger growing aeranthos, however it is also possible that this is another species, similar to aeranthos, but not the same. A caulescent plant with green to bronzy 3-inch long leaves.
The inflorescence is an extended scape with pink bracts and deep inky-blue flowers. Forms large clusters of plants that will bloom simultaneously in its season.
Tillandsia 'Mixtec Treasure'
A beautiful cross of chiapensis x botterii, two southern Mexican species, by Steve Correale. A fairly large plant to over twelve inches tall with silvery leaves that taper to fine points forming a graceful vase shaped rosette. The inflorescence is multi-branched, taller than the foliage, with a central branch longer than the others, which are curved inward. The color is deep red fading slowly to greenish, all with a coat of silver trichomes, very attractive.
This is a beauty and one of our favorite Tillandsias! We collected our original plants many years ago in Southern Ecuador and have propagated them since. An excellent species with many arching silvery-gray leaves in a 20 inch or larger rosette, with a beautiful branched rose-red inflorescence lasting for months.
Native to semi arid valleys and can often be found in trees near water courses. Somewhat of a slow grower but a spectacular plant at maturity. This species thrives with bright light and moderate watering and feeding.
Tillandsia 'Cotton Candy'
Mark Dimmit’s hybrid of the same grex as ‘Houston’, a (stricta x recurvifolia) cross. Larger than either parent, it has many silvery, semi-soft leaves in a full 8 inch rosette. The large semi-pendant inflorescence has bright rose-red bracts. A very showy plant!
