Air plant - Tillandsia tectorum 'Snow'
Our thoughts about this species
This is one of the most interesting-looking air plants, which is also a rare find, especially in Finland.
This cute hairy plant looks like it's covered with snowflakes. The hair protects the air plant from strong and direct sunlight at the plant's natural habitat, in the rocky desert areas of South-America.
As the plant doesn't need water more than 1-2 times a month, it can be an ideal choice for those they don't want to spend a lot of time with the watering. However, keep in mind, that this species really likes warm temperatures, so it's better to place it into a warm place with a min. temperature of 20 degrees (Celsius). Fun fact: When the plant gets watered, the hair 'disappear' and the plant becomes green. During the drying period, the hair grows back and the plant becomes hairy again!
If you need this air plant in a bigger quantity (min. 10 pcs), we are happy to give you a quotation by request!
Please note that the colour and size can slightly vary from the pictures. We always try to send you a blooming plant but the plants are not always with a bloom exactly when ordered.
It is possible to order the product together with a misting spray bottle and air plant nutrient! The misting spray holds 100 ml and it's easy to use for misting the plant with water. The nutrient gives your plant a good support in growth and it strengthens the plant.
