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.
Always, always receive beautiful healthy plants from Tropiflora! These plants were even more beautiful than pictured.
T. copanensis: a large and healthy offset at a reasonable price - excellent plant. Shipped very fast and carefully packed with a heat pack and thermal insulation material for safe transport to the northeast in winter - arrived in perfect condition.
Tropiflora: purchased my first bromeliads from Dennis and Linda in the late 1980s “pre internet”. Even as their business has grown so large over the decades, some key elements have never changed - 1. they are a family business with the next generation now very involved in the day to day operations, and their extended family of employees have worked there for years - that says something about the way the owners treat their employees. Customers experience that same level of care and are treated as family. 2. When you order online you get professional service and prompt order fulfillment. Questions on the phone are warmly received and you can expect knowledgeable answers. Visit in person - you’ll see the dedicated care given to the plants by their workers. And Brian the head grower can find anything you might be looking for and give you expert advice on growing it. A professional experience and treated as family - Best of the Best.
