One of the most spectacular of Tillandsias, with succulent silvery leaves and a massive inflorescence consisting of a red rachis with long silvery white branches. A Honduran endemic, restricted to the river canyons of the northwest, near the Guatemalan border, where it grows high up on vertical limestone cliffs. A large grower, it thrives potted or mounted and can reach well over 30 inches tall. An outstanding plant worthy of space in any collection.
A slow growing, large, showy species that’s never in good supply.
