Capitata Air Plant

Part of our premium air plant collection, the Tillandsia capitata is a beautiful, large growing air plant. This air plant will grow in sizes over 10 inches wide and about 7-10 inches or so high.

Originally from Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Honduras and Mexico, the T. capitata has stiff light green velvety leaves that blush peach when in bloom. 

These large air plants look beautiful displayed on their own or on a wall mount where their size can be appreciated. The capitata will also produce offsets ( pups) after blooming, and can grow into quite an impressive clump! 

Our capitata plants are currently between 4-6 inches wide.
