Straminea Air Plant


Notify me when this product is available:

Native to Peru and Ecuador, the Tillandsia straminea is a unique and incredibly striking large air plant. Impressive in size, these statement-making air plants can grow to be taller than 12 inches! 

The straminea air plant is particularly striking not just for its size but also for its velvety-silver leaves. This is a xeric air plant, meaning that it thrives in drier conditions and will like less frequent waterings than mesic varieties. This variety of air plant prefers just to be misted with water - no soaks for these dry-loving beauties!

This is also an incredibly unique air plant as it is one of the few air plants that produces a fragrant flower when in bloom. This fast-growing Tillandsia will bloom a beautiful inflorescence with fragrant white and purple flowers.

Current plants:

Medium- 6-7 inches tall

Large in Bud- 11-12 inches tall

Love Straminea!

This was the first time I purchased a Straminea and I really love this sweet plant! The only problem I had was that I ordered a medium and it came very small. I contacted the merchant and they were able to give me a partial refund for a smaller plant so I was satisfied.

Hi Julie,

Thank you for the honest review. We appreciate your business!

An attractive addition.

The T. straminea is a good large plant for the middle of my Tillandsia branch.

Hi Frederick!

Thank you for sharing those photos! We love the way you have displayed your air plants, and your straminea looks right at home. Thanks for being a customer! :)

Love it!

I needed a large air plant to fill an empty space in a hanging display. This filled the bill. It arrived in great condition and was carefully packaged.

Hi Carole,

Thank you so much for the great review! We love your display, and hope that you are enjoying your plants :)
