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.


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.

Air plants are unique - they Don't need soil, absorbing water and nutrients through scales on their leaves. Although caring for air plants is really easy, but if not done right it can quickly lead to the plant drying up.

Air plants need regular sprinkling of water on their leaves. However once a week, air plants need to be submerged in water. Take a big enough container and fully submerge your air plant for 3-4 hours. Once soaked, you need to dry them off completely! Hence shake them and put them on a soft towel. Place them under a bright spot for 2-3 hours so that there is no excess water on it. Make sure to dry them or air plants get a root rot very quickly.

Bright filtered or indirect light is ideal for air plants. Morning sun is healthy for the plants, however afternoon sun can quickly burn the leaves. Use a fertiliser once a month in the water when you soak the air plants to keep it healthy.
