Tillandsia Cyanea Variegated

Size
  • Tillandsia Cyanea or Pink Quill Plant is an epiphytic perennial with rosettes of evergreen, narrow, dark green leaves to 35cm in length, marked with red at the base, and flattened spikes of violet flowers from pink bracts in spring or autumn.

    It has a large showy bloom; a hot pink spike with purple flowers. It has pansy-shaped, three-petalled purple, in a tone colour between pink-violet to dark-blue that appear successively along the edge of the spike between the bracts, 1 or 2 at a time, for long periods. Some have a cinnamon-clove fragrance especially in the morning.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Good, bright natural light is bestAn east or west exposure fits that bill. You want it in this light to bring on the flowering & keep the plant happy for the long run.

     No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chips can be used instead of soil.

     Spray it once or twice a week, depending on how dry your conditions are.
  • USDA Zone from 10a (to 30 °F) to 11 (above 40 °F)

  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
