A special twist of nature, created in the selection greenhouse of Holstein Flowers.

Moreover, Smeagol has a very long vase life and can be kept for up to three weeks.

Flowering Houseplants

Tillandsia Capitata of Plant Company from Bergschenhoek receives the Glazen Tulp Award in the category Flowering Houseplants. This plant is a species in the genus tillandsia belonging to the Bromelia family. It is native to Mexico, Honduras, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, among other places. Tillandsia capitata actually comes in many colors and varieties and as a result, can be used in a wide range of situations. Because it is epiphytic by nature, it does not need roots to grow. This plant can therefore also be used as a so-called air plant. As an air plant, the plant also has an ornamental value because it is available in many color shades, from green to dark red and also with soft grey leaves that turn pink. This makes it a very easy and rewarding houseplant to look after. This variety is especially distinctive for its dark leaf color that changes to a beautiful bright orange in the bracts. This splendour will only get brighter in colder conditions and lots of light. When you plant it outside after blooming, the bright orange color will return because of the c So it's a real treat.
