Sparkers is a newish variety for us but we have fallen in love with it already. It is a hybrid of Brachycaulas and Concolor. These two species have given it fairly stiff leaves and an extra large mature size. It blushes red when flowering with a raised bract ending with bright deep purple tubular flowers which brings interest, texture and shape to any display. It’s round star-like shape makes it ideal to stand alone in a shell, attached to driftwood or even displayed in a decorative martini glass.
Place it in a bright kitchen window or outside in a mostly shady spot but remember that all tillandsia/air plants flourish with a little morning sun. Soak under water, overnight, once a week.
