Tillandsia Bulbosa is quite a distinctive species unlike any other Tillandsia in appearance. It is very difficult to get confused with other species. And it probably derives its name from it very large bulbous base that can measure up to about 2 to perhaps 4 cm. And it has oddly twisted and curly leaves, giving this variety a weird “ET” appearance. And bulbosa is native to southern Mexico and the West Indies southward into northern South America. Native populations also exist in the most southerly reaches of Florida. It’s very adaptable and can grow up to 12 cm - 15 cm. This species grows best when provided with bright filtered light, warm temperatures, and high humidity. When it starts to bloom, the uppermost leaves become bright red and produce tubular flowers with bright violet petals. Absolutely gorgeous for the bulbosa in bloom.
