Tillandsia Bulbosa Belize is an air plant with long twisting curly leaves grown from a large bulbous base. The leaves can turn from green to bright red when the Bulbosa is about to bloom beautiful tubular bright purple flowers. This air plant will die after it blooms but the offsets (pups) produced around its base will continue the life cycle. With time, these pups will produce a gorgeous multi-plant cluster. Tillandsia Bulbosa Belize are VERY easily cared for. They have fine but strong hair like roots that grow for the purpose of anchoring the plant to it's mount - not for transmission of nutrients. As such, these plants prefer warm to hot temperatures, dry conditions, and air circulation. In zones 9 +, these plants can survive outdoors but should be protected from temperatures below 60°. Bulbosa Belize may be grown in artificial environments, provided they are misted regularly, provided 12 hours of filtered or artificial sunlight, and moving air. Like all tillandsia, they do not require soil and only require occasional fertilization. Your air plant is only fully exhausted if you can pluck the leaves out of the central plant without effort. Usually this is the result of over watering and rot. Plants that die naturally will tend to still be tough and simply dry out and wither.
Light: Bright filtered light Water: Frequent misting several times a week is necessary, especially during its growing season in the summer. Bulbosa will also benefit from a soaking bath every month. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent rot.
