Brachycaulos is a well known air plant for its deep green coloration and interesting growing patterns. This is a plant that prefers bright, indirect light and frequent waterings. You will notice that when your Brachycaulos comes into bloom, it will turn a shade of red (pictured) then return to green after its blooming cycle.
Brachycaulos can be found naturally in various parts of central America at elevations of 600 - 1,200 meters. Brachycaulos can handle both high and low light levels, but will grow faster and have a deeper red bloom when given higher amounts of bright, filtered light.
During Summer, submerge plants in water for 30 to 60 minutes every week. After soaking, set plants upside down on a towel to dry before returning them to their containers. During the winter months, you may water less frequently, but be sure to watch the plant closely to ensure it is receiving adequate hydration. Once per month fertilization is recommended.
