Tillandsia tectorum is one of the most exquisite species. The trichomes are so large and such a bright white! The inflorescence is purple with astor-violet blooms the whole of which contrasts well with the white, fuzzy leaves. Tillandsia tectorum likes to be watered in a drier climate, more that one would think. However, this is a difficult species to grow in a hot, humid climate like Florida or South East Asia.Keep it in an area where it can be dry between waterings and/or make sure it gets lots of air.
