Tillandsia oerstediana

Notify me when this product is available:

A gorgeous bromeliad that's a relation to the pineapple plant, this one has a lime green spire which stay in bloom for many months, given the right conditions. It requires bright conditions with mainly indirect light and regular watering.

Note, the plant does not die when the bloom finally fades. With the right care and a bit of patience the plant will generate off-shoots which can also flower in time.

Please note, the planter is not included in the price. The planter sold separately is the Stoneware vase. 


Water in the natural cup of the plant. Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves. 

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
