A few of my favorite Tillandsias:

1) T. baileyi is native to Texas and Northern Mexico. It has a thick base and can grow to be large but is often only found in small sizes to purchase. The leaves are thick and have more of a fuzzy white appearance than other Tillandsias which is caused by little light reflecting hairs (indumentum).

2) T. andreana is short and spherical in shape with a bright coral flower. It is native to Columbia where it nestles itself in rocks and cliffs and is one of the most commonly sold Tillandsias in the trade.

3) T. caput-medusae  is widely available  where Tillandsias are sold.  The leaves are long, curvy and colorful. Simply gorgeous, even when not in flower. A slow grower and usually more expensive than others, but oh so worth it!

4) T.bulbosa has a really cool form and is more forgiving of neglect and drought than others. When they are in bloom the leaves surrounding the flower turn a bright red to attract hummingbirds. Native to Belize.

5) T.usneoides or Spanish Moss, as I previously mentioned, is only considered dangerous to it’s host tree if it is growing heavily as it can shade and weaken the tree and cause limbs to break. This air plant is a real beauty, providing a romantic, story-book appearance. Give this guy plenty of air, space and water.
