Description

Tillandsia bartramii is native to northern Central America and southeastern North America. It is often found as an epiphyte in northern and central Mexico, Guatemala and the U.S. states of Florida and Georgia. It is also known as T. myriophylla or T. pinifolia. The leaves are about 10 - 30 cm long, narrow, grey-green, densely covered with scales and arranged in a rosette. The plant bears very attractive violet flowers in pink spikes flowers in the flowering season.

T. bartramii is classified as a "grey tillandsia". These usually come from drier, more exposed places than the so-called green tillandsias. They often grow higher up in the treetops, in dry forests or even in deserts with a lot of fog. These atmospheric plants absorb water and nutrients from rain, mist and dust completely via the many absorbent scales on the leaves. The roots, if still present, serve as adhesive roots. In cultivation, such tillandsias are bent or glued onto hard materials such as wood or stones. This species prefers a very light, airy place. The plants should be sprayed with soft water about two to three times a week. Dipping is also possible. After watering, the plant should be allowed to dry. Ideally, an orchid and tillandsia fertiliser should be added every second watering during spring- and summertimer.
Like almost all tillandsias, T. bartramii also forms several pups at its base after blooming.

These can be carefully separated from the mother plant when they reach a size of about one third. If they are not separated, they grow together to form a larger clumb. This unusual and delicate Tillandsia can grow to a height of about 20 - 30 cm. It can be wonderfully integrated into medium to large subtropical humid forest terrariums or tropical dry forest terrariums.
