Tillandsia Mess It Up Red


Mess it up red is a hybrid of T. magnusiana and T. ionantha. This is an easy growing air plant. This plant does well both indoors and outdoors, these are true epiphytes as they are commonly found growing attached to trees or rocks. They take up their nutrients through their leaves and the roots are purely used for clinging to surfaces. When they go into flowering they will start to pup afterwards forming a clump. This plant goes a nice red colour when it flowers.

Note: This plant comes mounted on a piece of bark with a copper loop for hanging, the plant in the picture is the one you will be getting. When this plant is grown in full sun it will go an intense shade of pink. Refer to example in the last picture. 


Misting twice a week, Rainwater is ideal but tap water is sufficient, for best results mist with dilute orchid food during growing season and allow plants to dry upside down to prevent rot. These plant like good airflow.
