Tillandsia seleriana

$10.00 Out of Stock

An epiphyte or lithophyte native to Mexico and Central America where it grows mostly in pine forests above 2,000 feet. Tillandsia seleriana takes the pseudobulb shape to the extreme. A myrmecophyte or ant plant in nature, often or usually having ant colonies living in the hollow spaces in the pseudobulb. (Not in cultivation of course!) Growing to about a thick as a tennis ball or slightly larger, and up to 10 inches tall. The leaves are tightly closed at the top, giving it the general shape of a turnip! In nature this plant is almost always growing sideways or upside down and in cultivation this method is best so as to keep excess water out of the base. Grow in a breezy place.
