Caput-Medusae Air Plant


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.

---First picture shows a large Caput medusae in bloom.  We will send blooming plants when available!

**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.
