The popular Tillandsia Bulbosa is a very dark green air plant with naked to the eye trichomes giving it a waxy feel and appearnace. Its snake like legs grow in an unorganized fashion making each plant truly singular. To maintain its dark green color it should be grown in lower lights. Bulbosa sprout a striking dark red bloom with dark purple shoots. It is named for its bulbous base at the bottom of the plant because of its similarity to a traditional bulb. It is a slow grower and conservative mother, only producing a couple of pups per plant.

Care: air plants thrive in bright, indirect light, not direct. Bathe the plant once every week or two by submerging it in room-temperature water for 10 minutes (bathing in the morning is ideal, so that plant will be completely dry by evening). Remove the air plant and shake as much water out as you can, then flip the air plant upside down to dry in a bright area with good air circulation. You can mist the plant in between baths if it's in a particularly dry room, or it's getting loads of bright light.
