The TRUE species Tillandsia leiboldiana, not the more common cultivar ‘Mora’.
A beautiful yet not particularly well known bromeliad, Tillandsia leiboldiana is native to Costa Rica and southern Mexico. With it’s large colourful inflorescence Tillandsia leiboldiana makes a really unusual houseplant.
Plenty of bright but diffused sunlight encourages the bright colouration of the flower bract.
Similarly to Tillandsia cyanea and Tillandsia flabellata, Tillandsia leiboldiana grows best as a pot plant in free draining compost, but can also be grown as an epiphyte given plenty of humidity.
Supplied as unrooted offset at 3-6 inch tall.
