Tillandsia

Tillandsia intermedia

Tillandsia intermedia is one of the most interesting tillandsias because it hangs upside down and although it produces basal offsets, it also grows them from the inflorescence itself. This means that over time it will cascade down into an ever larger and thicker clump. PLUS, it has an incredibly modern and attractive shape. The leaves can re-curve into circles that give this species such a whimsical appearance.
