Tillandsia albida is very rare in it’s natural habitat. It is endemic to Mexico and has been reported to be restricted to only a few canyons at elevations of 600-2,000m. Because of this it is said that the species has a high likelihood of becoming extinct in it’s natural habitat. T. Albida is a Caulescent plant, which means that it has a stem-like growth pattern. The leaves are silver and rigid, and appear to spiral around the stem. T. Albida develops a striking crimson inflorescence spike which produces cream flowers (quite rare for a Tillandsia). Being a Xeric species, we have found it enjoys being grown in very bright, dry conditions with good air flow. Mounting this plant. It thrives when hung upside down and left to grow up towards the sun.
