Tillandsia streptophylla, also called the "Shirley Temple" plant for obvious reasons, is a most interesting species because as the leaves get more dehydrated, they curl up into tighter and tighter ringlets instead of the edges of a leaf curling up toward each other. Tillandsia streptophylla grows a gorgeous, pink inflorescence that is frosted with trichomes.
Sun exposure: Bright filtered light indoors or undercover outdoors.
Water requirement: Low–moderate.
Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape depending on the season. Flowering plants are sent when available.
