Tillandsia streptophylla are interesting, curly, moderately fuzzy air plants. Their tendency to curl under is achived by less watering. To have your Streptophylla stretch out, as seen in some of the photos here, water generously and more frequently. They blush pink and produce a large stunning bloom.
These plants are low maintenance, making them a great choice for people who are new to indoor plants.
They need regular daily indirect or filtered sunlight (so fine for desks, shelves, bathrooms or bedrooms). A weekly water is all they require - although you can always give them a mist in between if they look a little dry.
Air plants prefer regular air circulation, so we suggest open terrariums rather than the kind with lids.
We stock an air plant fertilizer which is ideal for this plant.
