One of the larger air plants, Tillandsia polystachia features extra-long, triangular to lanceolate grey-green leaves which curl dramatically. May flush out to a reddish-orange as it produces a tall, orange inflorescence. Can grow to approximately 1′ 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.
