Tillandsia capitata 'Peach'

4th April 2007

A broad leaved species, in full sun it colours bright red, or in this case, peach. The species comes from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras.

20th July 2008

It has come through the winter without damage.

21st October 2008

During the summer it has suddenly produced a spectacular and long lasting flower spike . Unfortunately, the parent rosette will now die. Cold weather has accelerated the decay of the parent rosette and I am hoping that it will still manage to produce some offsets.
