Tillandsia Species
Status: 2

Tillandsia geminiflora (gem-ih-nih-FLOR-a) is similar to Tillandsia gardneri but the soft leaves are bright green instead of fuzzy white. The inflorescence is more of a salmon color and it is large relative to the size of the plant. I have seen these two species growing side by side in Brazil. Like T. gardneri, T. geminiflora prefers bright light but cooler, more humid temperatures than many of the others. Still, both are hardy species and easy to grow. Also note that most of the plants in our inventory are some 3" in diameter, about half the size they can eventually grow to and which size is represented in the photos.
