Tillandsia tectorum

$14.99

Adorably fuzzy, the snowball like Tillandsia Tectorum Ecuador is covered in an abundance of trichomes (they look like fuzzy hairs!) which help it absorb humidity from the environment, making it one of the more drought and high light tolerant air plants. They are Native to the high mountains in the Andes in Ecuador and the coastal deserts in Peru. The name “Tectorum” comes from the Latin word for rooftop because Tectorum Ecuador is grown on roof tops in the Andes. It has tiny purple blossoms that grow from a reddish purple stem. To keep Tillandsia Tectorum Ecuador healthy mist 1 – 2 times weekly, use a spray based air plant fertilizer once a month, and provide ambient to bright indirect light. Try putting your tillandsia in a terrarium or a fun hanger!
