Description

Tillandsia Houston is a hybrid cross of Tillandsia Stricta and Tillandsia Recurvifolia. This popular cross results in airplants that are an incredible combination of the best of both parents. It carries the rosette forming leafy growth of Tillandsia Stricta softened by the silvery colour from Tillandsia Recurvifolia.

Tillandsia Houston Cotton Candy produces flower from white to soft pink flowers from a wonderfully bright pink floral bract.It produces a pink flower in bloom.

Like most of the popular Bromeliad houseplants, once flowering is finished the flowering bract 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.
