The Tillandsia Melanocreter is a slender green plant with a brownish base (we sometimes get questions on whether this dark base is normal, and for this Tillandsia, it totally is!). It gets the designation “tricolor” because it changes color based on how much sunlight that it receives. If it gets enough bright sunlight, it will blush shades of deep red and purple. If it receives less sunlight, it will stay more of a bright to dark green.
We recommend misting daily [or at least 3-5x a week] and giving it a soak in lukewarm tap water every 10-14 days in winter, and everything 6-8 days in summer.-measures roughly 8-10" tall
