A beautiful yet not particularly well known species, Tillandsia leiboldiana is native to Costa Rica and southern Mexico. It’s large colourful inflorescence makes it a great choice as an unusual houseplant.
Plenty of bright but diffused sunlight encourages the bright colouration of the flower bract.
As with other ‘tank’ bromeliads, Tillandsia leiboldiana should be watered in the centre of the plant… filling it’s tank. This water should be changed regularly to avoid it going stagnant and killing the plant.
