Tillandsia appenii

$15.00 In Stock: 5

One of the former Vriesea’s that has ended up as a full fledged Tillandsia, but was classed as Vriesea because of the presence of petal appendages that are a controversial key characteristic. Anyway, this is a handsome species from Southern Ecuador and Northern Peru that grows as an epiphyte or saxicole in open scrubland at about 5,000 feet in dry forest.

Reaching over 24 inches tall in nature, usually less in cultivation, it is a robust plant with silvery leaves and a somewhat bulbous based, upright rosette shape. The inflorescence is very large, many branched, bright pink and very long lasting. A superb plant that is rare in cultivation.
