Plant Care

Light: Tillandsia Caput Medusae thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Place it near a window with filtered light. Avoid exposing it to direct, intense sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Temperature: Maintain a comfortable indoor temperature between 50-80°F (10-27°C). These air plants are generally adaptable to various temperature ranges, but avoid extreme cold.

Watering: Mist or dunk your air plant in water once a week. Submerge the plant in water for 20-30 minutes, then shake off excess water. In arid climates or dry indoor conditions, increase the frequency to twice a week. Allow it to dry completely before returning it to its display.

Air Circulation: Adequate air circulation is crucial for air plants. Ensure they have good air movement to prevent stagnation and mold growth.

Fertilization: Air plants can benefit from occasional fertilizer. Use a specialized, water-soluble air plant fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Be sure to dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength.

Display: Tillandsia Caput Medusae can be displayed in various creative ways, such as hanging in terrariums, mounting on driftwood, or placing in decorative containers. They don't require soil and can be positioned in any decorative setup that allows proper air circulation.
