Sputnik Sea Urchin Caput Medusae Air Plant Kit


Reminiscent of a sea creature, the sea urchin caput medusae air plant kit combines the aquatic look of the Tillandsia caput medusae with a carefully selected natural sea urchin shell.

This warm and fuzzy looking Tillandsia has bright green coloring with hues of purple throughout the base extending up the leaves. This air plant is a great variety for beginners, as it is fairly hardy and requires minimal maintenance.

**Make sure when watering bulbous plants such as the caput medusae or bulbosa variety to shake out any excess water from amongst the leaves, as any water left in their bulbous bases can cause rot. 

Check out our Tillandsia Spotlight: Caput Medusae for in-depth info on this fascinating plant!

1-Sea urchin shell (approx. 2.5 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall)

1-caput medusae

*This type of sputnik sea urchin shell is much larger than the pink sea urchin shells and are rare for their size!  Perfect for medium sized air plants!

New to air plants

Your website suggested so many creative ways air plants can be displayed, it got me looking around my home for places they would look nice. I love how they look. I’m following the care instructions and hoping they will do well.
