T. Tectorum Peru Specimen
The rare Tillandsia Tectorum Peru is an unusually fuzzy creature. The Peru variety may grow much larger than the its super fuzzy Ecuador cousin. The leaves are covered in long, white, velvety trichomes, which capture water and nutrients from the air. This fuzzy plant favors a dry climate and very bright light. It grows well indoors, so long it’s close to a window. The inflorescence is soft pink with tubular violet flowers. Pups may emerge at the base of the plant.
Light: High light. May tolerate direct sunlight. Avoid super hot or intense afternoon light.
Water: Quickly dunk or thoroughly spray, then shake out any excess water and allow good air circulation. Soaking too long may discourage fuzzy growth.
