Tillandsia butzii is a fascinating species with tentacle-like leaves resembling something from the ocean. It's native to Central America, especially southern Mexico to Panama. This plant has green leaves with dark and light spots, growing to 8-10 (20-25 cm) inches tall, its main identification feature. When it blooms, it produces a striking red inflorescence with vibrant purple flowers. Pups grow from the base, eventually forming a substantial cluster. Its unique appearance gives the impression it might dart away like a minnow, with thin, shiny green leaves and a bulbous, spotted base.
