Tillandsia Tectorum are one of the best air plants for those who tend to forget to water their plants!!!!
They are native to the mountains in Peru and Ecuador, and used to short periods of torrential rain followed by very dry periods. Because of their native elevation, they also need brighter light than other air plants.

🌡50 - 90° F
💧Watering ➡️ Spray mist every week and a half. NEVER submerge, this could cause loss of trichomes. These types of plants can usually handle higher light too!

💚 Use tap or collected rainwater

🦄🌈🔆About Air Plants🔆🌈🦄
Tillandsia Air plants are native to Central and South America. They use their trichomes on their leaves to absorb nutrients from the air. They have grabbers that look like roots that can be taken off with scissors. They use these grabbers to attach themselves to trees, rocks & other plants. The majority of Air Plants flower. Most have pink or purple flowers. They only flower when they have hit maturity, this varies from plant to plant. When Air Plants are about to hit full bloom they can blush as well. This is when the leaves turn colors, usually these colors are pink and red hues. But wait, there is more! Air plants all produce "PUPS". These are babies that will traditionally grow around the base of the air plant. Pups usually come in right before, during , or after flowering! Pups can be taken off when they are about half the size of the mother plant!
►►►►IMPORTANT NOTE: We never add color to our plants. We believe that they should grow naturally, without intervention. This gorgeous plant will blush into a rose to peach shade right before flowering. The flowers are purple. Enjoy your plant and it's natural growth and changing process.
