Tillandsia crocata


Tillandsia Crocata is probably the most well known scented  airplant.  Native to Brazil, this small airplant is one of the easiest scented Tillandsia to care for.  Crocata produces small, bright yellow flowers over a long period that exude a powerful, sweet odour, possibly the strongest perfume of any Tillandsia.  Prefers a bright and airy position and can be moved outdoors in the summer to benefit from extra airflow.

As well as this standard yellow form, we also grow an orange form, Tillandsia Crocata ‘Copper Penny’, which grows to a slightly larger plant and the very nice hybrid Tillandsia ‘Buttercup’ which is a cross between the yellow and orange flowering forms!
