Description

Streptophylla air plants are a curly, irregular tillandsia with thick, pastel-green leaves. It is a pretty unique and interesting species because when its leaves get dehydrated, it curl up into tighter ringlets instead of the edges of a leaf curling up toward each other. Some loves the way it's leaves is elongated when it is opened up while other might like it all curled up like a ball when it is less hydrated.

Environment

Easy to grow, these air plants prefer bright filtered light and moderate water. They do prefer warm humid coastal climates, as such they should be misted daily in dry areas. They grow singularly or in clumps in coastal strands and hammocks.

Do not allow water to collect in the leaf bases as this will cause the plants to rot.  Soak the plant for around 30 min in water every week .

Good ventilation is a must. Feed with dilute liquid fertilizer fortnightly.

Landscape Uses

Ornamental plants which are great for attracting birds.
