Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana Air Plant - Air Plant Greenhouse

Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana (Small 5-7″)


0 out of 5

Recurving leaves form graceful recurving leaves around the main stem. Produces beautiful purple flowers when in bloom. Tillandsia Capitata v. Balbisiana has a very similar look to Tillandsia Twisted Tim but the leaves are not as curly. I highly recommend this Tillandsia Capitata v. Balbisiana if you like the look of a the Twisted Tim for a fraction of the price.

Width: 8.0″ – 10.0″

Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana Care Instructions

Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana is easy to grow. Take your air plants out of the box as soon as they arrive. Follow the easy steps in the air plant care guide included to get started.

+ Water +
Soak your Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana once a week in a bowl of water for 10 minutes each time. You can also mist your plant with a spray bottle 2-3 times a week if it needs more water between the soakings. Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana absorbs water through its leaves instead of roots. So flip them upside-down when you give them a bath. Gently shake off any excessive water from the leaves of the air plant after each watering. Place your air plant somewhere with good air circulation to dry them completely within 4 hours of watering. Do not put it under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plant.

+ Light +
Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana does well indoors but likes bright, indirect light.  Keep this plant away from direct sunlight as this will cause the plant to develop burn marks.

+ Air +
Tillandsia Capitata Balbisiana does best in warm environments between 50 – 80 F. It needs good air circulation and some humidity as well.
