The Tillandsia harrisii is a slow-growing, hardy air plant native to South America that can grow up to 8" in size and thrives in bright, indirect light and low to moderate humidity. It is named after a researcher and explorer of tillandsia who was murdered in Guatemala in 1985.
Tillandsia harrisii leaves, which grow inward and curl, radiate a red inflorescence and prefer locations with good air circulation. While your tillandsia harrisii may not bloom the first year, be patient, as it will eventually bloom a stunning purple bloom. Water weekly and fertilize once a month.
