Tillandsia paleacea

(1 customer review)


Tillandsia paleacea is perhaps one of the most forgiving air plants when neglected.  One of the more tomentose (fuzzy white leaved) air plants, Tillandsia paleacea prefers a bright position.  This air plant has a tremendous capacity to absorb water from the air, so it requires much less watering than many other air plants, care should be taken to not over water as it has a tendency to rot if watered too often/ too heavily.  A highly variable species with many forms, particularly prevalent in Bolivia, Columbia and Peru, paleacea produces violet blooms, which on an established clump can be borne in succession over many weeks.
