T. juncea (small)
The Tillandsia juncea has towering grayish-green leaves that grow upwards. These leaves have very fine tips and are also quite slender, somehow comparable to hay or straw. Even as the leaves grow, the plant maintains its upright structure, but as for the larger versions of this species, the longer their leaves grow, the more they tend to spread out and droop downwards. Over time, the juncea’s pale leaves may blush into various shades of red depending on the amount of light exposure it receives. Then, it blooms a red scape and bracts that are just as pale, and flowers that are deep violet in color. This species is simple but can make any empty space or location look much more appealing and homey.
