Definitely a plant for serious collectors only, Tillandsia Elongata isn’t one of the easiest airplants to grow. From the tropical rainforests of Venezuela, Elongata is accustomed to living in reasonably humid environments and requires similarly high humidity or reasonably frequent waterings. One of the least cold hardy airplants, care needs to be taken to keep Tillandsia Elongata away from cold air. More truly monocarpic than most Tillandsia, this species doesn’t always pup after flowering.
On the up side though, its blue flowers are held aloft a 7 feet tall inflorescence so the plant really does go out on a high!
