Tillandsia caput medusae


(4 customer reviews)

Filtered sun, temperate, semi-dry.

Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador 40-2400m

Widespread and variable. Grows epiphytically on tropical deciduous trees, oaks and cactus and also as a lithophyte.

Able to tolerate dry periods.

Ants often make their homes in the base.

An exciting shaped plant- very much like Medusa with its curling leaves.  As with other pseudobulbous species they can rot if water is allowed to collect at the base.  This makes this air plant a great specimen to mount sideways or upside down.

Available as large plant 20cm + high or medium plant 10-15cm.

    This is a replacement for one I bought long ago ( also from rare and air). After many attempts, my gardener finally destroyed it. The plants are strong.
