Very similar to the stunning, Tillandsia Xerographica, this unbelievably beautiful Air Plant is the perfect Tillandsia for ornaments, cups or bowls of any kind, or to simply sit on its own on a coffee table or a desk. And like the Xerographica, as the Streptophylla grows, its arms will extend and curl and wrap around itself. Its lovely leaves are wider at the base and grow into curly little tendrils.
This specific air plant will also grow quite a bit, and relatively quickly. It is xeric, which means that it requires less water to thrive. This particular variety likes to be misted 2-3 times a week if you live in a mild climate. If you live in a very arid climate, you should soak your plant for around 10 minutes once a week, but please ensure you invert your plant after any dunking and allow to dry upside down to prevent rotting.
The Streptophylla also prefers indirect sunlight, but does well with direct sun for a few hours a day.
The Tillandsia Streptophylla is native to Mexico, the West Indies and Central America.
