Tillandsia festucoides

8th July 2008

A new species I am trying this year, rather tall and unstable. I grow most of the Tillandsia standing on a small amount of compost in a small pot. It allows the roots to establish and helps the plants survive stresses (it's a trick the Americans taught me!). Although they are epiphytic, they prosper far more if they have a decent root system in a compost that will hold some moisture ( but NEVER enough to get soggy or stay wet for long).
