Description

Tillandsia 'Firestorm' is a hybrid of Tillandsia ionantha 'Fuego' and T. abdita. While T. ionantha 'Fuego' belongs to the smaller plants and is conspicuous for its strongly red calyx colouring, the T. abdita is a medium-sized species with white and thick foliage. The grey-green leaf rosette of the cultivar 'Firestorm' gets about 16 cm high.

T. filifolia is one of the green or rainforest Tillandsias that prefer a more humid milieu than the so-named grey Tillandsias. It is fastened on solid materials such as wood or rock. The plant likes a bright place, but without blazing midday sun if it gets daylight. It should be watered regularly, about 3 to 5 times per week, with soft water. That can be done by dipping as well as by spraying, so that the plant can absorb water and nutrients via its absorbent scales. However, permanent wetness between the leaf bases is not tolerated. The plant should be allowed to dry off between waterings. Ideally, an orchid and Tillandsia fertiliser should be added every second watering during spring and summer.
After flowering, the mother plant begins to form small pups. These can be carefully separated from a size of about one third of the mother rosette. If they are not separated, they will grow together to form a larger clump.

Tillandsia 'Firestorm' can be cultivated particularly well in tropical and rainforest-like terrariums. The broad, silvery leaves are arranged in rosettes and set beautiful accents especially in areas with dark underground. The plant grows into a broad and massive looking plant.
