The Tricolor Twins


The Tricolor Twins are a beautiful pair of Tillandsia tricolor melanocrater air plants. They are tall, elegant and look like flowing grass with bright green leaves that turn bright pink during blooming season. They are very strong and hardy plants with leaves that feel tough and rigid. Each plant measures around 5-7 inches long. Taking care of air plants is even easier than succulents – just soak them in water once a week and they’ll be happy.

Tillandsia tricolor photo via WikimediaTillandsia tricolor melanocrater comes from Central America region. They usually live on larger trees and rocks and don’t need to grow in soil – they absorb nutrients and water through their leaves. When they bloom, they produce a bright purple and pink shaft with little yellow flowers at the end. Their leaves will also turn a bright hot pink color. It’s really spectacular!

Since air plants are “epiphytes,” they don’t need to grow in soil – they just hang out anywhere there’s bright light and suck nutrients out of the air. They’re really easy to care for – just soak them in a bowl of clean water for 30 minutes each week and they’ll be happy. You can check out our blog article on how to take care of air plants.
