Tillandsia Species
Status: 2

Tillandsia nuptialis is a beautiful white Tillandsia that is very similar in appearance to Tillandsia albida and it is also similar in shape to the much softer leaved T. incarnata. However, this species is much more rare and it originates in South America rather than Mexico. They are easy to tell apart because the blooms are so different. The lime green floral scapes and intense white flowers are almost unique.  If the plant isn't blooming, the leaf sheaths of T. nuptialisis tend to wrinkle, a dead giveaway as to which it is. Tillandsia nuptialisis is easy to care for in bright light and it offsets well.
