Plant Features

The Tillandsia Cyanea, commonly known as the Pink Quill Plant, is a type of air plant that is well-loved for its striking appearance and ease of care. It features a flat, bright pink bract that resembles a quill, from which small violet flowers emerge. This bromeliad's leaves are thin, green, and grass-like, forming a rosette pattern. Unlike other air plants, Tillandsia Cyanea typically grows in soil, but it still retains the low-water needs characteristic of air plants.

For troubleshooting, brown or wilting leaves can be a sign of underwatering. While Tillandsia Cyanea does not require frequent watering, it should not be left to dry out completely for extended periods. Overwatering can lead to rot. Water the plant sparingly and ensure any excess water can drain away easily. Direct sunlight can cause the vibrant pink bract to fade. Keep the plant in bright, indirect light. Like other houseplants, it can be susceptible to pests such as aphids. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if pests are detected.
