Current plants are mostly green, but will blush red with ample light. 

The Tillandsia melanocrater tricolor is a unique air plant with stiff leaves that grow upward in a vertical shape. Because of its height and unique shape, this plant looks great nestled in a holder or centered in a display amidst other air plants. The Tillandsia melanocrater tricolor prefers indirect light and moderate waterings. In its bloom cycle, this striking air plant will blush a reddish-purple color, and will omit a yellow and red bloom tract with purple flowers.
