Tillandsia usneoides (thick straight leaf form)

Tillandsia usneoides (thick straight leaf form)

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Origins: Peru

Bloom: Not known for its bloom, but it does produce tiny little green flowers that are easy to miss if you aren't looking for them

Light: Best in strong indirect or filtered light

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary.  This plant has very thin leaves which limits its ability to store water so it will need more water than many other air plants


This form is very similar to the usneoides (thick leaf form) that I’ve had for some time, but the leaves are much straighter on this form. This form is easier to keep hydrated than most standard forms of usneoides as it is thicker and it has a soft green/gray color making it very attractive
