Tillandsia Streptophylla Air Plant - Air Plant Greenhouse

Tillandsia Streptophylla (Curly)


0 out of 5

Tillandsia Streptophylla, the Queen of air plants, has wide and succulent leaves that curl back and form loops. A pretty fast growing air plant, your Tillandsia Streptophylla will form more curly leaves if you give it less water. When flowering, top leaves will turn a slight peach color and white flowers will emerge on long extended spike. The “Small” and “Medium” sizes are curly at the moment. “Large” and XL” sizes are more green and have longer extended leaves.

Small (Curly): 3″-4″ tall
Medium (Curly): 4.0″ – 5.0″ tall
Large: (Green and lush): 5.0″-8.0″ tall
XL (Green and lush, may be flowering): 8.0″-12.0″ tall



Tillandsia Streptophylla Care Instructions

Tillandsia Streptophylla 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 Streptophylla 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. Tillandsias absorb water through leaves instead of roots. 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 plants.

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