Tillandsia incarnata branching? Male
Default Tillandsia incarnata branching?

I got a 3-headed air plant which I believe is tillandsia incarnata half a year ago-ish and then I split it up into 2 plants (1 head and 2 headed) and the 1 headed plant grew these small growths. Are these new heads? There are 3 of these growths but this one is the easiest to photograph.

Nice to see growth on our plants.

T. incarnata is one of those plants I can not grow. Know matter how I changed the light & watering they would get die back from the base & go up into the growth tips.

According to the book "Tillandsia" by Paul Isley III, he says of Till. incarnata "The stems branch as they grow, forming ever larger clumps until the weight of the whole is too much to support it. At this point, at least some of the clump breaks away." So your plant seems to be doing exactly what it is expected to do. Good growing.

I am not sure this is Tillandsia Incarnata because the ones on the internet show a more elongated stem and curved leaves. Mine has long straight leaves with about 1cm gap between each "level"

I went back and looked at the specimen shown in the book. It shows the leaves being fairly straight but definitely lack the separation between leaves that you mentioned. I think your suspicions of it not being T. incarnata are correct.

I'll take a pic of my 2-headed plant tomorrow (9 PM and raining)
Why not just this one with the new growths?
1. The 1-headed plant (This one with new growths) with the mew growths doesn't look too good, probably because of the rain.
2. The 2-headed plant is clearer and cleaner

I have a picture of the 1-headed plant I took a few months ago but it is not clear. Should I post anyway?

Here is the "old picture", it's from back in August 2017 when the 1-headed plant and my macro lens were still fresh.

That is how Tillandsias branch. They flower from the center of the growth, a terminal inflorescence, and that rosette dies. The branches from below continue the plant.

This plant is so green. Am use to looking at a very grey T. incarnata.

It is not out of a hot house because you are in the tropics?

Note most hot house Tillandsia's do become green as I see them incoming here from hot houses.

I agree it does not look like T. incarnata.

The thing is that this hasn't flowered yet.

Thanks, it's even greener after I water it.

I don't have a greenhouse. I just find a place and then put them in, I heard Tillandsias can grow pretty much anywhere. I put them in some reeds... (pic soon)

If it's not incarnata what is it?
