Native to very arid areas of South America, Tectorum is one of the more rare species of Tillandsia. Tectorum’s foliage has soft, fuzzy blades that are a silver to almost white color due its dense trichome coverage. Trichomes are the fuzzy bits covering the leaves that absorb water for the plant.

Although it is a slow grower, it can reach sizes in excess of 8 inches! During blooming a pink- violet spike will emerge from its center reaching a size taller than plant itself and shooting out purple flowers. Tectorum enjoys bright conditions (indirect light) and is very drought-tolerant.

Light: This plant prefers a very bright environment. Place very near a window but avoid direct sun.

Water: Mist all sides of the leaves well every 1-2 weeks

Pets: Non-toxic
