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!).

The we changed the name of T. tenuifolia Cabo Frio to its correct name, T. araujei v. minima.

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.

Tillandsia Curl Slim

Under Hybrids, we now have a few beautiful Tillandsia Curly Slim (T. intermedia T. streptophylla) offsets available in each of two sizes.  This is one of the most attractive Tillandsias because of the recurving “curliness” of the leaves.
