Tillandsia Caput Medusae Airplant
The Caput Medusae air plant is named after the mythological character Medusa, because of its curly, snake like stems. The leaves are smooth and project up and out from a bulbous base. A very unusual species of air plant native to Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama and sometimes called the Octopus plant. It is one of our most dramatic and exotic air plant specimens and also one of the most popular Tillandsia.
When the plant reaches maturity, it can even produce a shoot of bright red and pink flowers.
Air plants prefer nice air flow, indirect light, frequent misting and soaking and are easy to care for.
We will provide a heat pack free of charge, if necessary.
