The inflorescence can is no less than spectacular: brightly colored bracts interspersed with purple flowers. This bromliad’s green leaf is often emblazoned with dark spots on the outside. Tillandsia leiboldiana can also be kept in the living room as a house plant. The original habitat of this bromeliad is Central America.

Plant care

Preferably, there should always be water in the chalice of Tillandsia leiboldiana. This bromeliad likes a bright spot. If the roots are kept too wet, they’ll die off quickly. Daily watering is, however, recommended. Extra fertilization is not directly required. It is possible to keep the plant in the soil substrate, but it is done most justice if it is allowed to grow in its natural style: epiphytically. This plant can be placed on the backwall (preferably of fern root or other moisture-absorbing material) or on an epiphyte trunk.
