Tillandsia schiedeana Large Ball Clump

Plant for forever happiness, plant a garden. Bornean Tillandsia schiedeana is found in Venezuela and Colombia. It is a saxicolous species that thrives among rocks and cacti. On the steep dry slopes of semi-arid regions at elevations ranging from 0 to 1750 meters. This plant has more trichomes than typical air plants and can handle more sun and less water. It has long, thin, velvety green/purple leaves that interweave to produce a stunning clump. Blooming cherry red flower spikes with yellow blooms.

Care

Tillandsia schiedeana prefers shade in the summer afternoons. This species dislikes direct sunlight, especially if the air is dry. In the summer, cultivate it in partial shade. Temperature range: 10 to 32°C. If you grow it outside, get it early enough in the fall so it doesn’t freeze at night, especially if it’s damp. The plants can withstand temperatures near 0°C (sheltered and dry) for a few hours. This air plant requires high to moderate humidity. Aeration is essential, as is rapid drying (in less than an hour). Water twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter. Obviously, rain qualifies as watering if you grow it outside.
