Product Details

Highlights

Hechtia tillandsioides is flexible-leafed bromeliad from Mexico sometimes referred to as "False Agave," though the genera are only distantly related. It has an open, palm-like shape with leaves that are bright green on top and silvery grey underneath. The leaves curve nicely out of pots and hanging baskets though the plant should be brought indoors if there is a chance of frost.

H. tillandsioides needs bright sun, great drainage, and deep but infrequent water. Mature  plants will send up a tall bloom stalk with white flowers. Unlike most bromeliads, each plant is exclusively female or male. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round plastic pot.
