Tectorum Air Plant

$ 14.00 $ 10.50

The Tectorum air plant is fluffy and lovable, with textured leaves and a round shape. Each leaf is covered top to bottom with fuzzy white trichomes, which help the plant absorb water. The leaves change color dramatically to bright green when watered, and slowly change back to minty white as they dry. A slow growing and rare species, the Tillandsia Tectorum produces beautiful bright purple flowers upon maturity. Perfect as a dramatic addition to a terrarium, or simply set in a glass bowl. 

Small: approx 1-2"
Large: approx 3-4"

Includes detailed care instructions. Please note, each air plant is different and variation does occur - sold individually.

So, so fuzzy!

This plant arrived in perfect condition and was packed so well it didn't even look like it had been shipped. I am always pleased with my orders from Pistil's and will continue to be a loyal customer.

In Love!

I have never ordered plants on line but boy do I love my house plants! I am so glad I ordered these items especially the Tectorum Air Plant! The plants were packaged with care and arrived in excellent condition! They are very healthy and I love them all! The air plant perked up nicely in its forever home (after normal but minimal shipping trauma) and is one of my favorites!
