Air Plant - Tillandsia caput-medusae (red striped, enhanced): Named in reference to Medusa's snakes, Tillandsia caput-medusae has particularly curly leaves emerging from a very rounded bulb. Leaves will curl tighter when the plant is dry and straighten when it is re-hydrated. This variety is enhanced with stripes of plant safe red airbrushing. The dye can fade with several months of regular watering.
Air Plants (Tillandsia) - Care Information
Tillandsias are low-maintenance plants that require no soil, just plenty of water, sunlight, and airflow. There are three main watering strategies: mist generously 3-7 times a week, submerge completely 2-4 times a week, or soak for 1-2 hours once a week. To prevent rot, shake excess water out of crevices and give enough airflow for the plant to dry within 4 hours. Air plants need all the indirect sunlight they can get and should only be kept in low-light rooms temporarily. They can tolerate direct sunlight in the early morning or late afternoon, and it can even bring out brighter pigments in the leaves. Arrange them with sand, sea glass, rocks, or shells, but avoid absorptive materials like soil and moss.
