Tillandsia Curly Slim air plant | 12cm | Houseplant

Tillandsia 'Curly Slim'


This funky plant is a must-have addition to your plant collection! 

Air plants are fascinating little things and don’t need earth or water to thrive. Tillandsia are epiphytes, which means they grow on other plants (i.e. trees) instead of growing in soil in the ground. They absorb water and nutrients from the surrounding atmosphere, through their leaves and not through their roots. Please note that even though we are sending this plant in a nursery pot with potting soil suitable for air plants, they don't need to be kept in soil. They also have very shallow roots - if your plant gets knocked a little and ends up dislodged from the soil, it can easily be placed back. 

Comes in a 12cm nursery pot, ceramic pot not included.

How to care for your Tillandsia Curly Slim air plant | 12cm | Houseplant

Native habitat

Native to Central America

Light and position in the home

Your airplant will enjoy bright, but indirect light and dappled shade. Direct sun can burn their leaves.

Watering and humidity

Spray your potted airplant, or bathe if unpotted, 1-2 times per week in the summer. If bathing, place in a bowl/sink of tepid water for 15-30 mins and shake off excess. Tillandsias absorb water through their leaves rather than their roots, therefore it isn't necessary to water the potting mix. Keep slightly under-hydrated to accentuate the curls. Reduce watering in winter.
