This beauty is one more supreme hybrid created by Skotak. It is easy to grow, with abundant foliage and long lasting bright spikes. Some scientific names have recently changed so this plant is not really a true Tillandsia. It is an intergeneric hybrid! We have learned this in Facebook, in May 2017. We posted our pictures and bromeliad expert Geoff Lawn wrote that this plant has been "released (but unregistered) as Tillandsia x 'Antonio' (cyanea x wagneriana), now x Wallfussia 'Antonio' (Wallisia cyanea x Barfussia wagneriana)." Then Chester George Skotak, who made this cross, quickly replied with more information - He still likes to call it Tillandsia 'Antonio', because "the new genus names are confusing. Tillandsia cyanea crosses freely back and forth with T. wagneriana but their DNA, according to taxonomist, says no....two different genera."

Our Tillandsias - What do we ship?

We grow our grey-leaved tillandsias outdoors, here in Tenerife. We start them by dividing large adults, so they are all "XXL" in size. They grow exposed to full sun, rain and wind during the winter months and we shift them to morning-to-midday sun during the hot months. By doing so they become very robust.

Tillandsias are extreme epiphytes that typically do not like to be planted in pots. Most of them prefer to be hung on branches or wires. We do not provide any support with the plant that we ship so be prepared to fix your airplant. We recommend to tie them with nylon fishing line, or metal wire as a second option. We never use glue, since it can cause problems.
