So I bought my first air plant today from the greenhouse!
First is the lighter colored area okay? It seems less stiff then the rest.
And would you or any other followers know the specific name for this?
I want to be able to keep it for as long as possible❤️🌿
Air plants grow little baby versions of themselves called pups. Nurseries usually separate them so they can sell them individually. I’ve never seen the untouched clump sold in stores so consider yourself lucky! This appears to be a clump of Tillandsia ionantha - or one of the miniature varieties, which has been growing for years. The stiff part is likely a very old portion that has died off now. Looks quite nice - thanks for sharing!
