Tillandsia.nl (>Nederlands)

Hello, let me introduce myself shortly, my name is Eric Gouda. For many years, the sowing of Tillandsias is a challenge for me. It started around 1975 with the most common species, but soon also less common types became available and I did apply myself to smaller numbers of seed and of as many species as possible. Over the years I have developed my own system (click here to view).

Most Tillandsia species are really slow growers and under my circumstances, with little fertilizer, it takes aprox. 15 to 20 years or more before they are flowering size (depending on how large they should become). It is possible to grow many species with relatively little space, even though they grow slowly, over time, space become still a problem, especially because in the beginning I did sow too many of a few species. Now I usually limit myself to about 50 seeds, whose germination rate varies greatly depending on the age and condition of the seed.

Half-grown plants (at least 10-15 years old) are normally € 4 each, unless they are scarce or rare. Some species are available in ball form of more mature plants together (ionantha, bergeri, aeranthos). Postage in the Netherlands is € 6.95 (for abroad please ask), payment by Paypal is possible. We send plants all over the world, but can not supply phytosanitary certificates. Plants are standard posted registered (Insured and Track & Trace).

Tillandsia glue: The glue that can be used for Tillandsia, even in a wet environment can be delivered as well as special Tillandsia fertilizer. Don't hesitate to inform about it.
