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.
Light: Bright filtered light. Soil: No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil. Water: 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.
