Tillandsia caput-medusae is named after the Greek Goddess Medusa, for good reason! The twisted, fuzzy, tentacle-like leaves sitting on the bulbous base remind us of Medusa’s serpentine hair. Displays red, branched blooms with purple tubular flowers. Matures to approximately 4-6″ long. This is an air plant, so no soil needed! To care for them, simply soak in water for up to 30 minutes every week to 10 days, then hang upside down to fully dry. Air plants prefer bright, filtered or indirect light and a moderate temperature of 50-90°F.
None of our Tillandsia are harvested from the wild! They are all self-propagated in a nursery environment.
