Tillandsia Streptophylla Large

$21.00

This stunning curly plant is something special! A must have for the air plant enthusiast. She is very curly and has lots of trichomes that give her a slightly velvety-white appearance. Looks great as a standout plant for your project, terrarium, or shelf. 

Size: 5-6” tall and not currently blooming

Clumping: This plant can grow into a beautiful clump over time! Seeing Tillandsias dry out or appear to "die" is normal after it has bloomed and begun birthing little babies around her base. Once you start to see the mother plant dry out, keep her attached to her pups. You can clip her flower off when it dries out, but don't separate the pups to make sure the plant is strong and hearty enough to grow into a big clump over the years. With care, this plant can become a specimen worthy of passing down to your grandchildren. 
Care: Likes brighter light, making sure to keep it out of any direct sun. See our care page for more detailed care suggestions.

      Shipping & Plant Health

      • Plants don't like being in boxes, which is why we only ship fast & in CA, straight from our store in Berkeley. This way your plants will never be damaged by cross-country weather fluctuations, be in transit for too long, or arrive in poor health.  
      • We make every effort to make sure your plants arrive healthy and ready for you to add to your collection, even so, shipping them will often cause some slight imperfections or occasional leaf damage that will not interfere with the health of your plant. We encourage you to unbox and water your new plants as soon as they arrive.

      Plant sizes (like 4in Calathea) refer to the diameter of the pot size they are sold in. Our plants are most often available in 2in, 4in, 6in, 8in, and 10in, pot sizes. 

      • 2in plants are seedlings and require extra care because they are in a delicate stage of their life.
      • 4in plants are young plants that are well established, but small in size, depending on the species, they range from 3-8in high. A great budget option, or if you like to raise your plants on your own.
      • 6in plants are young adult plants that are established, mature, and great for a table top centerpiece. Usually 5-12in tall or wide depending on the species.
      • 8in plants are larger, more presence-full plants, great for larger spaces, or to give your home a more jungle vibe. Usually 12in-24in tall
      • 10in - Monstera and Ficus plants usually come in 10in size. A ficus in a 10in pot will usually be like a little tree size from 3-4ft tall. Monstera in this size will be 2-3ft tall and have split leaves at this age.
