Tillandsia fasciculata, or the giant, cardinal air plant, is a bromeliad species popular because of it’s large size and straight, grey to grey-green leaves. This air plant is found growing down in Argentina in the South Americas, all the way up to Florida in the United States.
The plants are stemless, and form a compound inflorescence with inconspicuous flowers in the axils of showy, creamy yellow, reddish, orange to yellow floral bracts and lilac petals. T.fasciculata often grows in clusters, with each one having 20-30 long, stiff leaves.
