Description

Tillandsia Albertiana is a smooth, flat-leafed air plant that produces a magnificent red flower when in bloom. This color of flower is actually quite uncommon among air plants. Albertiana forms into an attractive clump when mature, and produces a good many pups. Tillandsia flowers usually only last a few days, whereas this red flower can last for more than a week.

The air plant is endemic to the Northern tip of Argentina, called the Salta Province, however its name is derived from the botanist Alberto Castellanos. Because of its succulent, tender leaves it is able to survive through drier periods better than most other Tillandsia species.

It grows well in between rocks (placed in a crevice or rockery) or strung from a wire. This is a stunning air plant both because of it’s rare flower color and its interesting leaf texture, which is tender and smooth to the touch.
