With some 'rubra' mixed in I think. Its so nice my local Home Depot is selling Tills again. And unattached. Felt good to look through the "bin".
Any keeper experiences for me to keep in mind?

I just got one of these a few weeks ago. Ive had good luck treating it like any other tillandsia of mine: a 1-2 hour soak, half submerged, twice a week, and a generous misting in the morning and evening. Oh and biweekly feeding. Thats awesome that home depot had this! Mine came with 2 pups already started and it has sprouted 3 more in the short time ive had it.

Stan, no 'rubra' in it, just straight tenuifolia. They can grow into a big ball if not given too much lovin'.

Thanks Gonzer. I got to post a photo of it now outside and in flower. It stands out.

Rain Forest Flora sells to Home Depot in our area which is in Southern California. Paul, the owner, is such a nice guy who owns the business, ID these tilly's for me. They sell these cute colorful birds on a ring and they have that tilly as well on them. A beautiful store you need to visit if you are in the area of Torrance, California.
