Tillandsia lorentziana is a species of air plant found growing naturally in Bolivia and Brazil. The plant grows epiphytically in rocky outcrops and shrub, and is well-adapted for the harsh, dry conditions. The air plant is xeric in nature, meaning the leaves are light green ( almost gray ) because of trichomes that reflect sunlight.
The leaves look almost a pale-white, and can grow to lengths of around 15cm. During blooming, Tillandsia lorentziana, forms a long spike out the center of its rosette from which the flowers occur. The spike can add an additional 20cm to the plant’s height. The flowers are white and tubular.
Growing Tillandsia lorentziana is fairly easy, and it does well in bright conditions. Remember to water it more regularly in the dry seasons. But do not let water sit for extended periods in it’s leaves or base.
