Description

Comercial Name:  argentea

Tillandsia argentea grows as epiphyte in dry forested areas of Guatemala. It is composed of a bulbous base and thread-like blades that reach approx. 10 to 15 cm. in diameter. The thin leaves are covered by trichomes that give them a silvery green color. The inflorescence is elegant and simple, it flowers at the end of a long cherry-red stem into multiple cherry bottoms that burst into grape-purple flowers.

Etymology

Argentum means “silver” in Latin. Argenteus is the Latin adjective that refers to what is derived from silver, “silvery”, like T. argentea leaves.
