 Tillandsia cardenasii
     This is one you don’t see available very often! We got our two original plants in the early 90s...and just let them grow. They have grown and bloomed beautifully over the years. Our photo of the flower spike hardly does it justice - it’s really beautiful. In doing some major changes in our greenhouse, we decided to divide one.
