Brachycaulos x Abdita Air Plant


The brachycaulos abdita air plant is a very special hybrid version of the beloved brachycaulous. This plant starts life with velvet like soft leaves that are dense green in color, and grow upwards and outwards as it matures.  When the plant begins to transition into bloom, its color changes to beautiful hues of pink and cardinal red as it starts to emit purple, pink, and yellow blooms.

Lights up the room

This air plant is so vibrant that you can't help but notice it as soon as you walk into our living room. It definitely sets itself apart from other air plants and is a great accent plant for my home. I would definitely buy more of these. Thank you Air Plant Design Studio for delivering such a vibrant and healthy plant that makes me happy each time I look at it.

Hi Ashley!

Thank you for the great review and for being a customer! We are so glad that your air plant brightens your space!

Quite lovely

While on the smaller side, this plant is a statement piece with the red accents. It's perfect on my mantle and fits the size of my small sea urchin. I'm very pleased with it and recommend.

Hi Jodie,

Thanks so much for the review! The good news is that while the plant might be small now, it will grow to be quite large with proper care and will eventually bloom and form pups.
