One of the most extravagant shaped Tillandsia species, discovered in the late 19th century in Venezuela. Usually grows in clumps on cliffs in the mountains ranging 1000 to 1700 m height. Its outlook is similar to pine needles, with the soft, silver-greenish leaves forming a spiral on the plant base. A fancy plant by itself, but the group formations are a true gem for every airplant enthusiastic. Funckiana grows slowly. By getting enough light, the leaves turn vivid red before a full blooming phase. The flowers are also red and beautifully shaped. As a xeric-type plant, it likes bright, sunny places and needs misting once every 1,5-2 weeks.
