Item details

Tillandsia caput medusae. As this plant grows, the leaves will continue to twist and curl and create a beautiful "snake-like" appearance. A feature of this plant is the deep purple that lines the leaf margins. When this plant is in bloom, a thin orange/pink/red bract will emerge from the center and produce purple candlestick shaped flowers.

Care: Just like T. butzii or T. bulbosa, its best to grow this plant sideways or upside down to avoid trapping water between the leaves. Care instructions will be provided, but be sure to tailor to your specific environment.

Sizing: Your plant will arrive between 4 and 5 inches in height. It can grow up to 10 inches in height.
