Details

A pink quill and purple flowers make this an easy plant to love. The low maintenance needs and robust nature of this tillandsia or airplane make it a gorgeous addition to any space. In a Moss Ball, this is absolutely a stunner that will hang and inspire beauty.

A gorgeous epiphytic plant that can grow in a pot rather than on other objects. As a Tillandsia (but also part of the Bromeliad family) it grows in a different pattern producing showy pink bracts that resemble ink quills. It does take a few years for the plant to reach maturity to bloom. These are pretty mature at the moment and some have bloomed. The pink quill bract can last up to 4 months. It will then turn brown and dry. Please trim the bract and continue watering the soil once a week as a few months later you will discover a new pink quill bract growing.

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch or 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
  • Selene Planter - Porcelain 6-inch pot ceramic marble planter with drainage hole and matching rose gold ceramic tray. The planter measures: 7.5" x 6.5" x 6.5" and weighs approximately 3.7 lbs. We recommend placing your plant in the nursery pot inside it to make it easy to water and transplant.

The Quill flower arrived half dead and with my proper care I brought it to life just to have it die a couple of weeks later. Seems like this plant only blooms once and then vanishes. Save your money on this item folks

So pretty and still doing great!!

I received this plant 2 weeks ago and it looked great upon arrival and it was packed in winter packing. It starting flowering almost instantly and still look beautiful 2 weeks later! I love it but I am worried I won’t be able to keep it alive. I have read their blog and still don’t understand the new babies that appear (towards the roots I think 🤷‍♀️). Anyhow, it’s fun and beautiful for now! The last ones shows the packages but it also came in an insulated bag, etc.

Pink quill airplant

First I didn’t realize this was an air plant so it’s in a pot. Anyway just a couple of weeks ago it started gettin little blue flowers on the quill. I was very surprised and pleased. Will it hurt to keep it in a pot os soil? And should I be watering it since it’s an airplant?
