I do not have it but I really like it. I like all of them, actually.

When I bring in my plants for autumn, I will take a picture of my wreaths. I like to document the growth, anyway.

I really enjoy seeing all your air plants. I do not have many different types (~15) but I really, really love them. I bought straminea in hopes that it will be fragrant though I think at least one of my mystery air plants have had fragrant blooms (I smelled a fragrance did not find anything but the air plant in bloom.). Have you noticed any of yours being fragrant?
Thanks again for sharing yours.

Hi Leafmite

Great to hear you like your Tillandsia. They go very well with orchids!

Some of the scented Tillandsia can have a strong scent one flowering and the next flowering no scent at all.

Two scented Tillandsia that I very much like are T. crocata and T. mallemontii. Both very easy to grow here.

To help with smelling the scent of Tillandsia is to put a bunch of plants with flowers on them in a small box over night and next morning open the box to the best scent smell.

If you could replicate their smell you would be onto something very special. Do not really get into perfumes but one I smelt last year was a vanilla smell. Light and delicate just like scented Tillandsia.

Having a bit of trouble identifying the difference between T. bergeri and T. aeranthos.

This image should be a T. bergeri and it does have the lighter coloured purple flower. So am calling it T. bergeri.

The confusion is all my other T. bergeri have an area at their base that have dead leaves or/and a bare stem at base. This example does not fit into this description.

T. bergeri (plant spoken about)



An example of the die back at base of plant T. bergeri with old leaves in place. Older examples have a bare stem at base only.

Really like this Tillandsia. It flowers last for months. This flower is about 6 weeks old.

Tillandsia caulescens

Wow! How spectacular! The variety of these continues to amaze me! I made a note of the fragrant ones you mentioned. I do not have those. I am going to do an order in a couple of months as this group has done well for me so I am ready to venture into some new varieties.

This is what I have so far:


Tillandsia:
ionantha
Juncea
Juncea red-green
Seideliana
bandensis
straminea bush--should be fragrant one day when it blooms? Hasn't bloomed yet.
mini brachycaulol green
capillaris
tectorum ecuador
tricolor melanocrater
mini caput medusae
fuchsii v gracilis
brachycaulos multiflora
aeranthos hybrid
acranthos miniata cr “Mini Me”
recurvata

I wish I had found a way to label my air plants when putting them on the wreaths. I took pictures of them with their names but a few look very similar and I am not experienced enough to tell some of them apart. That will be the next wreath.
I will try to take pictures of my little collection soon to post.

Thank you for your kind words Leafmite!

For ID and more info I like this link. It does not have all Tillandsia but it a good start when trying to ID our plants. When I purchase from my wholesaler nothing is labeled so it soon teaches you how to ID a plant very quickly.

Mine did come labeled and I took pictures of them with the labels but a few of them look so similar to me that I really cannot distinguish them (I just do not have enough experience with air plants). The fuzzy Tillandsia Tectorum is never a problem, though.

Thank you for the link. Of course, this is just going to make me want to buy more of them, isn't it?
