Tillandsia streptocarpa, sometimes called the “air plant” is an evergreen, caulescent, perennial plant forming small clumps with silvery leaves arranged into thick rosettes. An average adult is normally 20-30 cm across and mostly to 25 cm tall (occasionally up to 40 cm tall). The flower spike is slender with sweet, fragrant blooms which are very large in relation to the size of the plant, and there are usually several flowers open at the same time along the branched inflorescence. The flowers are distinguished by short stamens and even shorter pistil and by broad showy spreading blueish-violet petal-blades. Tillandsia streptocarpa is a variable species as it is widespread, some forms have very few narrow leaves and others have thick semi succulent leaves.
