One of our Tillandsias are in flower AKA our Air Plant because it need no soil. The leaves are normally a lime green, but when they flower, they turn a vibrant reddish color.
I found the tag for this one and all it says is Tillandsia houston X. I think that is some type of hybrid. Anybody know the species of this guy? I have a feeling it is brachycaulos.
Check out the detail on these flower. I cannot remember the last time I really took a look at the pollen and parts.
What I have noticed is that the flowers last a very short time. We missed photographing the last one, but caught the one before.
