The fuchsii v gracilis looks like it has a case of bed-head! Hailing from Mexico and Guatemala, the Tillandsia fuchsii v gracilis has filiform ( thready) leaf blades that extend out from a round base. The leaves of the T. fuchsii gracilis are light sage green in color and have ample trichomes.

Formerly known as T. argentea, the T. fuchsii v gracilis has very symmetrical leaves and can clump and grow into a sphere over time.

Due to their very thin leaves, be sure that your T. fuchsii v gracilis receives adequate water. If you notice that it looks dry in between waterings, you can lightly mist their leaves.

When in bloom, the Tillandsia fuchsii v gracilis emits a long slender bloom spike that will turn from green to red when in bloom. It blooms flowers that are red and purple.

These plants lend well to use in terrariums, placed in a bowl with rocks, crystals, or other air plants, or even just sitting on a shelf.
