Description:
This name is given to at least two different species of the Bromeliaceae family, including Bromelia palmeri and Tillandsia ionantha. B. palmeri is a plant native to Mexico. The species known as bacuella gui'xhi can have a number of different forms, such as herbs, plants that grow among rocks (rupicolous), plants whose leaves are arranged like rose petals (rosette-like) and plants that grow on other plants (epiphytes). The epiphyte bacuella gui'xhi plants grow on trees and cactuses. However, they do not extract any resources from the plant they develop on, so they are not parasitic plants. The species found in La Ventosa are usually small, and do not exceed 0.5 meters in height. They are abundant in La Ventosa. One of the plants known as bacuella gui'xhi, Tillandsia sp., produces an inflorescence with purple flowers. These flowers, which have no aroma, are used in the New Year for the manger of the Baby Jesus. Another produces spherical fruit with a bittersweet flavor, still considered edible by some people. Others still have leaves shaped like a hammock under which armadillos shelter.
