Tillandsia Stricta Magenta

$6.00

This air plant is a great bushy clumper with an incredible magenta bloom. Her leaves grow more wavy wild than other tillandsia and over time her clumps form beautiful little bushes that will make anyone wonder what planet it came from.

This is a cute medium sized air plant that is bushier and has presence. Her leaves are green and flexible without being delicate. She has lots of trichomes that give her a slightly velvety-white appearance. This variety is definitely one of the coolest in the Tillandsia Stricta family. 

Size: 4-5" tall and wide; 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.

 

Plant Health: At Paraíso we go above and beyond to ensure our plants are healthy and ready to thrive indoors. We hand-spray every surface of each plant with organic cold-pressed Neem Oil. Neem is an organic horticultural oil that is a highly effective pest control and preventative. It's safe for humans and bees, and helps to ensure your plant's long-term health. 

We strive for our plants to be the healthiest and most lush around because we care deeply about plant health.
