Tillandsia marconae—A new Tilly offering

Rare in cultivation, Tillandsia marconae is a species with whitish, rather soft leaves that is 7—10 cm in its mature state. It offsets easily and frequently and will form an almost perfectly spherical, dense clump. The photo is of a small clump.

Water just the outside part if you have a clump. In humid, hot environments, you may want to open the clump inside to allow natural air ventilation. And it’s not expensive!

Price and Name Change and New Additions

There has been quite a bit accomplished over the past few days with some of the plants on our website. First of all, because of an increase in our inventory of Tillandsia Blushing Giant (T. streptophyllaT. seleriana), we have been able to drop the price of this beauty from $125 to $75 – a saving of $50 (At least while our increased supply lasts!).

We’ve added two new special hybrids, Tillandsia Leo J (T. ionantha T. bulbosa) and T. Leo J Druid (T. ionantha Druid X T. bulbosa).  These are the reverse of a super-popular hybrid, Tillandsia Joel, hence the names.  The T. Leo J Druid, especially, has great variation among the various clones (seedlings).  The first photo is of T. Leo J and the next two are of different T. Leo J Druid plants.  Pretty cool!  They are now available until we run out—check out Hybrids on the website.
