Bulbosa Guatemalan Air Plant

This Guatemalan variety of the bulbosa Tillandsia resembles a sea creature, and would be a great compliment to a beach-themed air plant terrarium, nestled in a sea shell, or displayed just about anywhere! This unique-looking dark green air plant shows even more character as it grows, producing a bright red bloom and unusual pup clusters.

Make sure when watering the bulbosa guatemala, to shake out any excess water from its base, as water left amongst its leaves can cause it to rot!

I wanted something fun and unique for my desk. And I thought it might be perfect for this little dinosaur planter. I was right, and oh man does it make me smile everyday! Th plant was in perfect condition and seems to be very happy!

How cute!! We love this! Thanks so much for sharing :)


Very unique and fun shape

Thank you for the review Deena! These are some of our favorite plants, glad you like them!


Love this little guy! The leave on mine were not as long and whimsical as the example pictured, but each plant is unique, as the sellers state. In time I'm sure it'll grow. Came well packaged and perfectly healthy!!

Hi Abby!

Thank you for the review, and you are right, over time the bulbosa will grow and will have the more whimsical shape that you like! Thanks for your order :)
