Ehlersiana Air Plant


Notify me when this product is available:

The Tiillandsia ehlersiana air plant is a striking plant with bulbous base and trichome-covered leaves. When it blooms, it will produce a rose-colored bloom spike and brilliant purple flowers. 

The Tillandsia ehlersiana will eventually grow into a clump if pups are left attached, and will form a unique ball. This type of tillandsia can also be adapted to high light environments due to the abundance of trichomes.  

The Tillandsia ehlersiana is available in the following sizes:

  • Mini is around 2-3 inches
  • Medium is 4-6 inches
  • XL is 10+ inches

Neat shape

This is such a cute air plant. I ordered a mid-sized plant but may have to also order a big one! It arrived in pristine condition.

Hi Julie! Thank you for your review :) We are so glad that you like your ehlersiana air plant!


Came well packaged and in great shape...

Thank so much for the photo and review! The ehlersiana is one of our favorites and we are glad that you are happy with your purchase. Have a great day! :)

What upright little fellows these ehlersiana are!

This is another first for me, or I've not seen these plants in this manner before. They are going to be great accents - with a slightly different color, that upright nature that just says "Howdy!", well, this is a new fav of mine, now. Yeah, sure, Debby! As always, also very high quality. Love the minis, too. Can't get enough!

Hi Debby!
We are so glad that you love the ehlersiana plants! And we love seeing your new plant creations. Thanks for being such an awesome repeat customer! :)
