Tillandsia klausii

Tillandsia klausii was discovered by Renate Ehlers around 1985 near Tustragtiere, the capital of Chiapas, Mexico.

It is a pot-shaped species covered with fluffy trichomes, and is a beautiful species with narrow and thick leaves that gently curve and develop.


The origin of the name is a dedication to Mr. Klaus, the husband of Mr. Erels. Romantic is already out of the way.

Apparently, the native habitat where this species was discovered seems to be a dam now, and it seems that it may already be extinct in the native habitat. It's a very attractive type, so rediscovery is desired.

Stocks obtained at a silent auction held during a local gardening event on May 30, 2018.

This strain is a breeding strain of the chairman of the Bromeliad Association, and is an original clone obtained directly from the discoverer, Ms. Erelus.

I can't lose it for a moment ...

At the time of flowering, the leaves were slightly dyed red and it was very beautiful.

The trichomes were tightly attached to the inflorescences and bloomed dark purple tubular flowers.

I left the inflorescence as it was for a while, but I was worried about the condition of the stock, and if I exhausted the stock without blowing it, I cut it because I had no children.

Currently, the child stock is safely looking into the face, so it's a relief ♪

Also, there are two small seedlings on the leaves, which are also growing well, but I have no idea what kind they are.
