Native to the high-altitude Andean regions in South America, It is an air plant characterized by its striking appearance. Its leaves are densely covered in trichomes, tiny hair-like structures that give the plant a distinctive silvery and fuzzy texture. As an epiphytic plant, it doesn't require soil and can be affixed to various surfaces. Tillandsia tectorum's air-absorbing trichomes allow it to thrive in its native mountainous habitat, where it can absorb moisture from the air. These unique attributes make it a favorite among plant enthusiasts seeking low-maintenance and visually captivating additions to their collection. Proper care includes providing ample indirect light, good air circulation, and regular misting or soaking for humidity.
