Tillandsia intermedia (small)
Tillandsia intermedia requires frequent watering and ample air flow. Place in shade outside (in mild climates or summer months) or a bright room. Mist 3-5 times per week with distilled water (recommended). Take extra care by turning it upside down after each watering to release any excess water that can accumulate inside the base. As with most air plants, be sure it dries within at least 4 hours after watering.
Each Tillandsia is hand picked and cared for with love while waiting to meet it’s 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.
• Native to western Mexico, from Guerrero, Sinaloa, and Jalisco
• Bloom color: Pink inflorescence and purple tube flowers
• Between 3-4 inches long
Tillandsia intermedia is a wonderful air plant because its leaves are long and curly. It is also rare to find in cultivation making it a must have tillandsia for collectors. Display by hanging it upside down in a wire or string hanger or mount to driftwood.

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.
