Easily one of the most sought after Tillandsia at the moment, T. tectorum has it all! Its massive coat of trichomes are absolutely incredible! This particular variety originates from Peru and varies from T. tectorum Ecuador in that it has a much more open and vertical growth habit.
Those fuzzy hairs? They're how the plant absorbs water from the air. Water vapor collects on each individual trichome and is absorbed by the plant. It's native to extremely humid environments and can be misted daily. It also appreciates high light.
