A miniature novelty with a walnut shape. Mature plants are about 2 inches tall and have odd, metallic gray leaves. The colorful inflorescence is a short scape of deep rose bracts and rose red petals. Discovered by Roberto Kautsky in Domingos Martins, Espirito Santo, Brazil, 1973. Grows as a twig epiphyte in partial shade. In cultivation it likes good air circulation and moderate watering. Not for full sun.

This plant was a little smaller than I expected but it sure is adorable. I look forward to having it grow to its full potential. It elongates I believe and having never had one, it will be a great plant to watch. I have hundreds of Tillandsias purchased from you and they have always performed beautifully. Thanks for offering this little beauty.
