Product Description

Lava rock from the "Big Island" of Hawaii is hand selected to provide a home for your Pink Quill Tillandsia plant. These exotic plants thrive on their rock homes and make excellent house, dormitory or office plants. Proper name: Tillandsia cyanea. CARE IS EASY! Water the whole rock once or twice a week depending on conditions. The rock may be placed in a saucer of water, thereby requiring even less maintainence. They are perfect plant rental units or decorative pieces for homes and watergardens. Place them in a bright window, and just keep a small amount of water in the saucer. Fertilize monthly with 1/4 strength of a good quality soluble fertilizer found at your local home and garden shop. Tillandsia cyanea (sy-a'nee-a): Native to the forest of Ecuador, where it grows on tops of trees or shrubs. Considered one of the most desirable members of the genus for cultivation because of its compact form and brilliant, long-lasting inflorescence. From forty to sixty thin, grass-like leaves, 1 to 1-1/2 feet long, form a graceful rosette. The leaves are vertically striped with brown on the back toward the base. The inflorescence, a fan-shaped head, 4 to 6 inches long, 2 inches wide, and comparatively thin, is of the brightest rose. The large, brilliant blue flowers emerge singly or in pairs along the spike. Culture: Tillandsia cyanea, also known as Pink Quill, do best in bright indirect sunlight. They need medium temperatures of 50 to 65 degrees at night and day temperatures of 68 degrees or higher.

The plant in the picture is beautiful but...the one I received had a broken rock and the plant was growing at an angle, not upright. The seller is holding the resolution hostage waiting for my feedback withdrawal. Something to think about before you purchase. Oh and seller gets hostle if you leave a neutral feedback.

I ordered this plant and a pink anthurium volcano plant for Valentine's Day. The quill arrived in good shape, there's no dainty blue flower in it by the way, with a plastic tray to fill water in. Two months later in April the pink flower browned progressively and several leaves had to be cut back. It molded on the rock, and parts of the leaves. I won't profess to be a total green thumb but the care instructions aren't hard. These are the only molding plants I have. It is still alive however, that should be reported. The pink anthurium arrived as a red one, and Hirts sent a brusque e-mail back not apologizing or offering to help; merely saying send it back for a refund. I had to get someone a different gift because the red plant was in poor shape. I didn't go through sending it back because plants are not an easy shipper and it was more trouble than it was worth. These plants are from a company in Hawaii and just resold through Hirts. Buyer beware, for twenty dollars it's worth it to actually go to a garden/florist store and pick the precise plant.

I also purchased this plant and have quite the green thumb. After not even a week of receiving the plant the beautiful purple flowers died and the plant has this rotten smell to it and is looking dried up and dying. Looks nothing like the picture entails. I'm so sad I wasted the money on this item. I purchased another plant at the same time and it is either dead or dormant after a week as well. A person is better purchasing locally unfortunately so they can show the seller immediately and get the problem resolved. I followed the instructions to the "tee"

In 1915, Sam Hirt founded a green house that he would use to house exotic plants. This family business was passed down to Sam’s son Alan and his wife Clare. While Alan owned the business the property was sold to developers. Clare who did not want to let the business go, took over the businesses and relocated it down the road from the original building. Clare’s son Matthew and her husband have taken over the horticulture section of the business, however Matthew is now the official owner. The business has received national coverage and ships flowers all around the world.
Located on the tropical island of Maui, Hawaii, one will be taken back by the breathtaking scenery and gorgeous landscape. On a recent vacation to Maui, my family was blown away by the diverse array of flowers of the island. Hoping to bring a sense of relaxation to their home, they purchased a Hawaiian Pink Quill Volcano Plant. Within a week, after returning home, the quill began to wilt and the breathtaking purple flower shriveled up and died off. Devastated, my family turned to Amazon and purchased the same exact flower. Upon arrival the flower appeared healthier then the flower purchased in Hawaii. The quills radiated a healthy pink surrounded by hearty dark green leaves. After two weeks of having the plant at home the purple flower bloomed promptly followed by a second flower. This growth surpassed the growth of the of the plant from Hawaii, who when brought home never bloomed. The quality of this plant that Hirt’s Gardens sells is one that should be applauded due to their ability to distribute products that outlast other products distributed directly from Hawaii.
A key factor that effects the buying motives of any customer is the price.
