Tillandsia “Betty” (Xerographica x Brachycaulos) is a large-growing hybrid of the popular T.xerographica and T.brachycaulos. It takes on the size and shape of the mighty xerographica, whilst combining the flamboyancy and blush of brachycaulos.

During bloom, Tillandsia Betty’s leaves blush a deep red rose color during bloom. The flowers can be a mix between white, purple and yellow. It is a spectacular species and can make for an attractive centerpiece on a table.

Tillandsia “Betty” is both a rare and interesting plant, and is a must for any serious plant collector.

Just like most other air plants, it prefers good natural light. Water it well regularly and ensure it dries out completely in between watering.

It was first hybridized by Paul Isley in 2005.
