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.

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 € 6.75 (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).

There are two price lists, the one below with medium or larger size seedlings, and the list of collection plants available, you will find them on the 'surplus' list. The number of available plants and price are listed. To download the price list below, click here.

Tillandsia glue: if you want to mount Tillansia with a glue, you could use Bison Kit/Tix, but is not ideal in a wet environment. We can offer a special water resistant glue that can be used to mount Tillandsia

Tillandsia Voeding: we can also offer a special balanced Tillandsia fertilizer with instruction how and what to feed. This is not a 'hocus spocus' bottle like you can buy in the shops, but a high quality N+P+K +Mg (>60%) fertilizer that is balanced for Tillandsia in particular. These plants has a high K(Potassium) and low P(Phosphorus) demand and also need Magnesium. You can not buy this kind of fertilizers in hobby shops. If you are interested, just ask.

Seeds are available from the WWW Virtual Bromeliad Society An other important source is the Encyclopedia of Bromeliads
