Tillandsia Medusa Head
Tillandsia Head of Medusa (Tillandsia Caput Medusae) is native to Central America and Mexico, where they grow on tree branches located in arid areas. This species of tillandsia is silvery green with hints of purple.

Medusa’s head is a classic airy plant that can withstand more direct sunlight and less water than other varieties of plants. Amazing fact: these unusual plants will grow directly, even if they are suspended horizontally or upside down. They do not turn and do not grow in response to gravity, as many plants do. Pretty cool, right?

Aerial plants The head of Medusa got its name from an evil creature from Greek mythology, whose hair was made from poisonous snakes and its guests turned into stone. One look at the snake leaves of the tillandsia Caput Medusae, and you can see how it got its name - but don’t worry, you can watch how much you want this atmospheric plant, and you will be fine.

One of the most common epiphytes of the Bromeliad family, Tillandsia the head of a jellyfish amazes with its exotic appearance. The plant can really be compared to a jellyfish or an octopus. By the way, the last designation has taken root in everyday life. Indeed, thick leaves reaching 25 cm in length are similar to the tentacles of an octopus. Depending on the humidity, they either straighten out or curl towards the outlet. Their surface is covered with a small white fluff - trichomes, the main task of which is to collect moisture from the surrounding atmosphere.

At home, aerial plants Medusa's Head look great on vertical stands or in florariums with sea shells and sand to relax and feel the sea.

Watering: as always, the amount of water and the frequency should be adjusted based on your conditions, but in general, we recommend that you water the tillands caput medusae at least once a week by immersing for 10-30 minutes in warm filtered water. Since these airy plants are bulbous, you must be careful not to overexpose the plant in water and create conditions for quick drying, otherwise stagnation of moisture can lead to decay of the plant.

The size of these plants is about 14-16 cm in length.
