Description

You can see how this intriguing variety got its name, with twisted and tangled leaves which resemble the wild snaky hair of Medusa. Tillandsia caput-medusae (which translates to Medusa’s Head air plant) makes a fascinating house plant, not only for its foliage but also for its bright pink flower which appears during the summer months to bring a splash of colour. Being an air plant, it doesn’t require any soil or potting up, allowing it to be displayed in a variety of contemporary ways, such as in a vase, hanging glass ball, terrarium or nestled into ornamental wood. Perfect for a modern interior, give this low maintenance plant it a spot in a well-lit room and spritz with water every now and then and it will be quite happy. Height: 40cm (16”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
These Tillandsia are epiphytic plants which do not require compost to grow. They can be wired or glued onto a suitable support such as wood or an attractive shell. Position airplants in bright, filtered light with good air circulation, at a minimum temperature of 5C (41F).
More Info
Water frequently from spring to autumn by immersing the entire plant in rainwater or misting thoroughly. Allow the plant to completely drain and dry after each watering. Feed monthly by adding a small amount of bromeliad fertiliser to misting water.
