Tillandsia Butzii, native to Mexico and Costa Rica, is a unique looking air plant with a speckled base and leaves. The base is bulbous with a deep purple green color. The grassy green leaves are long, thin, and wavy like a rare type of fishtail. Butzii has a smooth and shiny surface. After this air plant blooms purple flowers, it will die but the offsets (pups) produced around its base will continue the life cycle.
All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
Bright filtered light.
No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.
Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Butzii 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.
