Common Name: Pink Quill, Tillandsia Cyanea
Scientific Name: Wallisia cyanea
-Care Recommendations By The Dude-
Best for These Animals:
Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFlora, TerraFauna
Soil Depth: Shallow to Moderate with proper drainage
Lighting: Most Light Levels Suitable-- Higher Light may cause the leaves to blush red, Too Low Light will inhibit flowering
Humidity & Misting: 40%-100% *Higher humidity preferred but can tolerate low humidity / Suggested for Optimal Growth
Mature Plant Size & Root System: Pink Quill is a smaller bromeliad which produces large showy pink bracts which house bright violet tubular flowers. Unlike many related Tillandsia, Pink Quill is able to flower many times before dying. Mature plants may develop "pups" or offshoots from the base of the plant which will grow to mature size. It is best to leave pups attached until they are mature before separating. / Shallow fibrous root system, mostly used for anchorage rather than water absorption, as this plant mainly uptakes nutrients by being watered into the center of the plant, allowing the water to flow down into the "tanks" between the leaves of the bromeliad
Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: High temperature tolerant / Front (low) placement or mounted (in high humidity environments)
Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Non-Toxic if consumed though these are typically used for ornamental not edible purposes
Pot Size & Packaging: A Single 4" potted Bromeliad Pink Quill Plant / Plant is Shipped bare-root wrapped in newspaper
