Tillandsia Cyanea

Hardy Epiphyte Tillandsia Cyanea

This beauty is commonly known as the pink quill part of the Bromeliad family and native to Ecuador. Bromeliad are epiphytic plants that grow on trees or rocks, but they are not parasitic and simply use the structures as perches from which they gather sun and moisture. 

Unlike most Tillandsia species, the pink quill can be grown in a pot as well as an air plant. Because the roots don't take in water, they gather moisture and nutrients through their leaves. These moisture loving plants love a good misting or humidifier. 

Care and Maintenance

These plants take up water and nutrients through their leaves, so the soil can stay a bit dry as long as the leaves stay hydrated. They prefer bright-indirect away from any direct sun.
