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

Air plants are unique - they Don't need soil, absorbing water and nutrients through scales on their leaves. Although caring for air plants is really easy, but if not done right it can quickly lead to the plant drying up.

Air plants need regular sprinkling of water on their leaves. However once a week, air plants need to be submerged in water. Take a big enough container and fully submerge your air plant for 3-4 hours. Once soaked, you need to dry them off completely! Hence shake them and put them on a soft towel. Place them under a bright spot for 2-3 hours so that there is no excess water on it. Make sure to dry them or air plants get a root rot very quickly.

Bright filtered or indirect light is ideal for air plants. Morning sun is healthy for the plants, however afternoon sun can quickly burn the leaves. Use a fertiliser once a month in the water when you soak the air plants to keep it healthy.
