The T. Eric Knobloch is a special hybrid between the Streptophylla x Brachycaulos air plants, and was created in the 1960’s by an avid air plant collector and grower from New Orleans.
One of the most sought after hybrid Tillandsia, this beautiful plant is bright green with wide curling leaves. As with many hybrid varieties of air plants, The T. Eric Knobloch will grow to be larger than either of its parent plants.
Over time as the plant matures, the leaves will blush a beautiful rose color and the leaves will curl even more creating a round funky shape. When blooming, it displays a vibrant purple flower.
Caring for your Streptophylla hybrid is easy. This is a mesic variety of plant, so make sure that it gets ample filtered light, and water once a week. Take care to shake out any excess water from the leaves of this plant, if left in the leaves, it can cause rot.
