Tillandsia Tectorum is one of our rarest and most beautiful air plants! This Tillandsia has layers of soft, white leaves making it a highly unusual air plant, even among other air plants. In the spring when mature, Tillandsia Tectorum blossoms into beautiful violet flowers, making for a striking contrast. Tillandsia Tectorum will sure to be the jewel in the crown of any air plant terrarium or collection.

See our article “How to Care for Air Plants” for more about general air plant maintenance. However, this comes with two important caveats: Tillandsia Tectorum should not be soaked, ever! 2-3 mistings a week is perfect for this air plant. Likewise, Tillandsia Tectorum does not require too many nutrients, so it is best to spray your Tillandsia Tectorum with a nutrient-rich water like mineral or spring water rather than fertilizing it. We recommend our Mister Spray Bottle for this plant!
