The blades of T. paucifolia are more succulent, stiffer and straighter than other Tillandsia species. The color of T. paucifolia is normally lettuce-green and the leaves are covered with fine, closely appressed, cinereous trichomes. The inflorescence has a carmine-red color and, while flowering, the upper portion of the plant becomes rosy. This plant not only produces basitonal offsets, but also develops one or more pups from the inflorescences; its growth is slow but grateful and, with patience, in about two years, an amazing and original clump is formed.
