Are you a fan of Greek mythology? The caput medusae air plant is as close as you will get to staring straight at Medusa's head without turning to stone! This warm and fuzzy looking Tillandsia has bright green coloring with hues of purple throughout the base extending up the leaves. The caput medusae's leaves mimic the serpents that consumed Medusa, and are sure to add a uniqueness that is not seen everyday.

**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.

Upon receiving your air plants, soak in water for 20 - 30 minutes. Then shake off excess water and dry upside down until completely dry. Water plants once or twice a week with misting between as needed. Never leave air plants sit in water for more than an hour – they will rot!
Air plants require bright, indirect light which can be sunlight or consistent indoor lighting.
Good air circulation is important for your air plants! Do not place your air plants in soil.
