This is an especially large and robust form of this species that came originally from Argentina. T. didisticha is one of the most sought Tillandsias for collections. A lovely medium sized plant usually to about 6 to 12 inches, this form can grow to about 16 inches across with a bloom spike of lovely pink to almost coral colored branches and white flowers. Stays in color for many months. Easy to grow, prefers bright conditions, on the dry side. Very cold tolerant to near freezing with no distress.
