One of the very few red flowering airplants, Tillandsia Albertiana quickly forms an attractive clump.
This distichous (leaves forming in mirror image like pairs) airplant is endemic to the steep cliff faces of the Salta Province of Argentina. Tillandsia Albertiana is a very easy to care for airplant and will tolerate periods of drought. Each plant produces one relatively large flower, which unlike most Tillandsia flowers can last for a week, established clumps can produce flowers in succession over upto three months at a time. Named after the Argentinian botanist Alberto Castellanos.
This airplant is supplied as a small clump as pictured. We often have More established Tillandsia Albertiana clumps for sale too.
