Tillandsia Tectorum Ecuador Air Plant - Air Plant Greenhouse

Tillandsia Tectorum Ecuador


0 out of 5

Tillandsia Tectorum is the fuzziest kind of air plant that there is! This furry air plant is covered with a dense coat of trichromes to help it absorb water in its natural habitat. A very drought-tolerant plant. Display your tectorum in a terrarium or by itself on the desk. This air plant is hard to dry out so only spritz it with water instead of soaking it completely. It enjoys air circulation so make sure it dries out completely after each watering.

Tillandsia Tectorum Ecuador Care Instructions

Tillandsia Tectorum is fairly 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 +
Mist your Tillandsia Tectorum 2-3 times a week until the leaves are moist to touch. You will notice that the trichromes (the thick fuzz) will begin to stick to the leaves of the plant. You can also soak your Tectorum about once a week but make sure you set the plant somewhere to good air circulation and let it dry out completely within 4 hours. It is preferred to mist this plant rather than soak it since it takes longer for the Tectorum to dry out. Gently shake off any excessive water from the leaves of the air plant after each watering. Be sure to let the plant dry out completely before watering again. Do not put it under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plant.

+ Light +
Tillandsia Tectorum does well indoors but likes bright, indirect light.  Keep this plant away from direct sunlight as this will cause the leave tips to dry out.

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