Tillandsia Bergeri is an air plant from Brazil. It grows natively in parts of Buenos Aires on the steep rocky cliffs. It is known as one of the fastest clumping species of air plants, and grows all-year round.
Tillandsia bergeri is rightfully called the "Mad Pupper" of the Tillandsia world. Unlike most tillandsias, it offsets all year, thereby growing into an attractive clump faster than any other Tillandsia. It normally doesn't bloom every year but rather its effort goes into growing into a large specimen clump. It's ruffled flower petals is not common in this genus. Tillandsia Bergeri is well adapted to the dry, sunny conditions of Brazil. The leaves are covered in trichomes which give it the gray color. This allows it to absorb nutrients from the air, whilst reflecting excess sunlight. After watering, you will see that the leaves are green. That is an indication that the air plant is doing well. Tillandsia Bergeri is a great air plant and easy to care for.
