Tillandsia capitata ‘Domingensis’

$10.00 In Stock: 1

A cute miniature with reddish, narrow leaves and a red scape with long bracts and a capitate head with blue flowers. An enigmatic plant discovered in Eastern Dominican Republic growing on tall limestone cliffs by Luis Ariza Julia and Prof. Eugene de J. Marcano. It was identified as Tillandsia capitata by Lyman Smith but a form never before seen. Later it was introduced to cultivation by Rauh as a varietal form of capitata and was given the provisional name of ‘Domingensis’ which was subsequently rejected scientifically, but serves well as a cultivar name to keep this diminutive form separate from the many mainland forms. Easy to grow mounted in bright light. Will form large clusters in time.
