First Bloom: Cirrhopetalum pulchellum

Cirrhopetalum pulchellum

I picked up this Cirrhopetalum pulchellum back in January from Norman’s. This is its first bloom. The flowers are much smaller than they look – the whole spread is about an inch across.

beautiful. almost looks like an insect. we’ve been growing tillandsia for the last couple years. while they’re slow going it’s amazing to see it when they bloom or sprout pups. always enjoy seeing your new posts.

Wow, not seen that one before. I love plants that look their best through a magnifying glass.
