The Tillandsia Usneoides, also known as Spanish moss, is a plant without roots from the epiphyte family. This plant gets its water and nutrients through its leaves from the (moist) air and raindrops. The Tillandsia Usneoides has curly grayish and long down-growing leaves that mostly hang over the branches of trees. The beauty of this kind is that it spreads itself and living area by the help of Mother Nature. Mainly by wind or birds, this air plant is being moved and spread to other branches for example and so continues to develop and grow in other places, which is very different from our other air plants.
The Tillandsia Usneoides mostly lives in tropical areas with high humidity and under the right circumstances can grow to a length of 1 to 2 meters! The original habitat of this plant ranges from Argentina to southeastern United States.
The Tillandsia Fasciculata is mostly known for its bigger size within the family of Air Plants. It is also referred to as the giant airplant or cardinal airplant. This air plant species originally grows in Central America, Mexico, parts of South America and even Southern states within the United States. The Fasciculata could also grow a very beautiful red/purple flower, whereas we get these air plants before the flowering stage to our main location in The Netherlands where the cultivating continues. We are happy to provide you with this unique Fasciculata air plant, as it comes in two different sizes.
The Tillandsia Juncea is a relatively long and narrow species within the Tillandsia family. With its thin green leaves and a height of 30-40 centimeters, the Tillandsia Juncea is very suitable for tall vases and decoration. This plant can efflorescence well below average care , and so there will grow a nice and powerful purplish flower from the center. Generally, the Juncea grows and flourishes relatively slow when compared to other Tillandsia species. Sometimes it takes almost a year before the non blossomed flower entirely ceased blossoming.
The Tillandsia juncea is native to Central America, Mexico and parts of South America. Since the flowering stage is a long process with this plant, this species is often brought to Holland before but also during the flowering stage. Here, the cultivation process is further prosecuted on the location of Corsa Plant in De Lier.
