Tillandsia tectorum (Caulescent Form)
A caulescent (stem growing) from of Tillandsia Tectorum.
Although a beautiful airplant, any form of Tillandsia Tectorum can prove to be a challenge for novice growers who tend to kill them with kindness. This airplant really does like to be kept dry with plenty of time to dry out before waterings. A light spray every couple of weeks is normally plenty. Tectorum is a very slow grower that has adaped to live in very dry conditions with very little nutrients. Therefore we recommend not feeding this variety.
