A cultivar of (intermedia x streptophylla) by Mark Dimmitt. A bizarrely delightful plant with uniquely curling leaves and a colorful inflorescence. Taking the best characteristics of both parents, it has wide, strap-like, extremely curling leaves, a bulbous shape and a long inflorescence with many curly scape bracts.
It will often offset from the inflorescence as does the intermedia parent and can form a chain of oddly twisting offspring. A choice plant for any Tillandsia lover and one of especially easy care. Grow bright and breezy and feed often for great fast growth.
My order just arrived. I was pleasantly surprised how big this Curly Slim was- almost the size of a garden trowel!
BOTH of the hard leaf tillandsia are about to flower.Plus, all the plants are just as healthy as can be.
Very pleased, 😃Beth
Cool plant that's been on my wishlist for a while
