Tillandsia 'Mystic Rainbow'

 

Airplant 'Mystic Rainbow'

Tillandsia is a genus of evergreen, perennial flowering plants commonly called airplants. They are mostly epiphytes growing without soil while attached to other plants. Generally, the thicker the leaf, the more tolerant they are of drought conditions. Tillandsias are very hardy, and require much less attention than other house plants. Propagation is by seeds or by offsets called "pups" which can be separated when about 2/3 the size of the mother plant. The flowers are generally small. The plants are monocarpic which means that they die after blooming. 'Mystic Rainbow' is a registered cultivar of Tillandsia (Seed Parent: Tillandsia albertiana; Pollen Parent: Tillandsia arequitae) and produces silvery green stiff foliage and pink/peach coloured flowers when in bloom.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Tillandsias can be grown basically anywhere, on rocks, in a seashell or on coral, in ceramic or pottery, attached to wood (not pressure treated wood this is impregnated with copper, and copper will kill your plant). When considering what you are going to do with your plant don’t forget that you have to be able to water it and it has to be placed somewhere that it will get sufficient light. Give them bright, filtered light.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Flowers can last from several days to many months, depending on the species, and different species bloom at different times depending also on its care and environment. You can expect blooms from mid winter through mid summer depending on the plant.
