Synonyms:

Tillandsia circinnata, Schltdl. 1845
Vriesea streptophylla, (Scheidw.) É.Morren 1873

Etymology:

streptophyllus: streptus = twisted, phyllus = leaf

Propagation: seed
Origin: Mexico, Guatemala, Jamaika, Honduras
Habitat:

no exact data, epiphytic from sea level to 1500m.

Notes:

Tillandsia streptophylla can reach a diameter of 30cm and a height of up to 40cm. It tolerates drought very well, rolling up the leaves at that time, giving a very unhealthy impression. As soon as dew (or spray water) falls, the leaves stretch again, after 2-3 days the plant looks perfectly healthy again. Tillandsia streptophylla may be lightly sprayed regularly every 2-3 days, watering should be avoided.
The inflorescence is more than magnificent (more beautiful than on the picture), approx. 50cm high, 30cm in diameter with bright colours. The flowering period can be up to 3 months.
