Oaxacana Air Plant

The Tillandsia Oaxacana is a dreamy white snowflake like star - a pretty addition to any simplistic modern display.

The foliage is numerous and features shades of dark to bright greens while being covered with icy white/grey hairs. It forces a dense pseudobulb rosette up to 20cm in diameter [small about 5cm - picture 2; large about 10cm - picture 3]. The inflorecent is simple-spiked, almost cylindrical 12cm long; flowers in a spiral. The petals are blue, upright, inclining into 5cm long tube.

It likes a light filled spot and can handle a bit of sunlight.

 

 

!!!! 3 soft pink blooming large Oaxacana are in stock right now - if you fancy one, please select the large plant and leave a note during checkout stating 'blooming please' - Thank you!!!!

 

Tip! > similar looking to the Rubra within the concrete vessel but larger and sturdier.  The small size sits nicely within the small concrete copper cups or mini vases, while the large size is great for the hexagon copper cup or the geometric bowl.
