Tillandsia recurvifolia var. subsecundifolia
Species, Brazil.
See also T. leonamiana, these two plant labels are often swapped, particularly in US and other imports.

Tillandsia recurvifolia var subsecundifolia This is the orange flowering plant and has been broken down into 24 very nice clumps to grow on.

No purple or blue in this plants flower. The purple flower we call in Australia via Germany is T. leonamiana. Interesting bit of history about the America notation v Germany notation on these two plants being the opposite to each other.

The weather has warmed very quickly. Just inland from here where you get away from the sea breeze temps get very hot and 35c or 95f are exceeded over the next 9 hot months just inlanda bit from here.

From Sep to June we have a great amount of cooling N/E salt winds that have really healthy seaweed smell in the salt wind. The airplant food that the salt winds give my Tillandsia/airplants is eminence and they show it.

Then there is the time the beneficial storm season feeds the Tillandsia's as well. So many pups in this weather.

This sea breeze cools the Tillandsia down to the point that they flower many times per year here.

For a great many Tillandsia the seabreeze climate here is perfect for aggressively growing many Tillandsia's. They are just so healthy and robust.
