Tillandsia duratii - Air Plant
Tillandsia duratii is one of our favorite "Collector's Air Plants." The plant's rigid leaves fold downward as they mature, in an attempt to hold onto tree branches and cactus spines. When a plant reaches maturity, their giant bloom stalks end with lilac, grape-scented flowers that last a long time.
