Tillandsia Species
Status: 3

Tillandsia arequitae (are-eh-KEE-tye) is a rare species and our only one that originates in Uruguay. It's similar in appearance to T. xiphioides but the leaves are white instead of the brownish color of T. xiphioides. Its blooms are similar to those of T. xiphioides as well, huge and white with ruffled petal edges. Unfortunately, the flowers are fragrant like those of T. xiphioides. This is one of the most sought after species and it's availability is extremely limited. However, the exemplars, when we have them, are large!
