Air Plant - Tillandsia flabellata
Like Tillandsia cyanea, Tillandsia flabellata is another one of those WOW species. Red leaves and a rare, multi-spiked coral inflorescence with violet flowers make this one attractive plant. Also like Tillandsia cyanea, this species can be grown in a potted in a fast-draining mix or mounted with sphagnum moss. Medium light is best. Those we have are on the small side, some 10–12 cm (4–5") so you will need to grow them out but your patience will be rewarded.
