Tillandsia straminea 'Thick Leaf'
A variable plant found across the Andean valleys of Peru and Ecuador where the temps are hot in the days and cool at night and the wind is almost always blowing. A cluster forming plant that forms large masses of plants that have brilliantly white, silvery leaves and tall scapes with pink to lavender branches and large, very fragrant flowers. Many local forms exist from long and caulescent, short leaved and long leaved, thick and thin forms. There are smaller varieties and giant forms. This form is a ‘thick leaved’ form with leaves that are quite broad and thicker than some, lending a more robust look to the plant. The inflorescence is very tall, to almost 24 inches with a cluster of branches and many fragrant, two-tone flowers; white and lavender.
