Tillandsia capitata domingensis
Tillandsia capitata domingensis loves plenty of water therefore it’s best to mist 3-5 times per week or soak 1-2 times per week for a half hour each time (distilled or filtered water is best). Be sure it is dry within 4 hours after watering. Place in bright indirect sunlight with some air flow. Display this air plant by mounting it to a rock or driftwood or hang it with wire.
Each Tillandsia is hand picked and cared for with love while waiting to meet its new owner. Please Note that each Tillandsia will vary slightly in shape, size and color and can have small blemishes as they are real, living plants. We always inspect each one thoroughly to ensure that the plants are 100% healthy before sending.
Please Note: Wire not included

What are air plants? Their technical name is Tillandsia and they are one of the few plants out there that don’t require dirt to thrive. They are epiphytes which means they use their roots as grabbers to attach to trees and rocks instead of using them in the dirt. Some air plant species actually do use their roots in dirt but there aren’t too many like that. Air plants receive nutrients through their leaves by way of tiny little trichomes. Water and air both can have the nutrients they need to thrive and grow bigger. Air plants are very slow growing compared to most other plants and you might not see any noticeable growth for a year or two! Air plants are also related to the more commonly known bromeliad which you will see quite often at nurseries or grocery stores.
