Native to Southern Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala, where this 'Queen of Airplants' is found suspended in the canopy of sub tropical rainforests.
They form a rosette of tapering, silvery green leaves which curl back upon themselves, producing a spherical shape, the leaves curling like ribbons at their ends. When mature, these sculptural rosettes can reach over 3 feet in diameter.
Tip: Wrinkled leaves means that your airplant is dry. Soak in lukewarm water for 5 minutes, then gently shake off excess water and invert the plant whilst it dries to avoid trapping water at the base of the leaves. Mist regularly between soaking. Prefers bright but indirect light.
Please note, plants may vary slightly from the one pictured.
