I've tried a mesic : Tillandsia dyeriana

stephaniaJune 5, 2007

Last week, a plant shop in Chatuchak Plant Market,

the biggest source of ornamental plant in Bangkok City,

had this Heliconia-like Tillandsia for sale, 200 Thai Baht or 5.5 US$.

So, I took two plants back home.

Don't know the hint to take care of this mesic type, any suggestions are welcome.

just as 'mesic' means regular moist environment..weak doses of fertilizer on a regular schedule

He (they) should be right at home in your humid area Stephania. I have never had success growing this plant due to my location's lack of humidity. Without the bloom the plant can easily be mistaken for a member of the Racinea genus. Damp and humid = success.

Oh MY do you still have this plant I have been looking for one :) You treat it just like a Bromeliad they say, but its been awhile so I guess you know that by now :) We cant find these in the US.

You can find them here but unless you have a pre-montane rainforest setup at your place then save your $$$.
