Bulbous Airplant

tillandsia bulbosa


This Tillandsia is blooming.


It is widespread across Central America, the West Indies, southern Mexico. While a number of species are terrestrial, growing in soil, most of the Tillandsias which are commonly seen in cultivation are epiphytic, growing on branches of trees, on rock surfaces, and other substrates without any need of soil.


I bought this plant from a plant shop in Cameron Highland. This plant aren't native to my country.
