Tillandsia tricolor melano
This sturdy little hybrid has long, firm, triangular leaves and produces a simple spike like blossom when they flower. They are one of the easiest to care for air plants, making them a great first air plant for the budding enthusiast or a delightfully low maintenance edition to a growing collection. Tillandsia tricolor v. melanocrater will do well in a basic terrarium on top of a nonabsorbent base such as sand, rocks, or glass or they can be mounted on wood or rock, or placed in a hanging display. Your Tillandsia tricolor v. melanocrater will need bright filtered light and warm temperatures to thrive. Water your air plant by spraying one to two times a week depending on the humidity of your home and applying a spray based air plant fertilizer once a month to maintain your plant for years to come.
