Description

Tillandsia cyanea (common name pink quill) is a member of the bromeliad family of air plants, and gets its name from the plume of bright pink bracts that last for months.  It is a medium sized species and one of the few tillandsias that grows best when potted, though it may also be grown mounted.  Arching, narrow green leaves grow in a rosette with flower spikes appearing in summer. Its pink bracts are densely overlapping, with violet-blue flowers emerging for a brief show.

Like most of the popular Bromeliad houseplants, once flowering is finished the flowering bract of the Pink Quill plant starts to die, followed by the main adult. With its energy exhausted it has once last trick which is to produce several offsets around its base - the next generation. These offsets or "pups" can be separated from the parent plant if desired and grown on to hopefully flower themselves one day, or you can leave them where they are.

 Landscape Uses

Suitable for Container, Hanging Garden & Xeriscaping
