The Tillandsia paleacea air plant is one of the more drought-tolerant air plants due to its abundance of trichomes, making it a great Tillandsia for those in drier climates. If you live in a climate with more humidity, you will need to water the Tillandsia paleacea infrequently as it will absorb moisture through the air.
It is important not to over-water these air plants as they can be prone to rot if left in moisture for too long. We recommend dunking or spraying the Tillandsia palacea with water instead of soaking them like many air plants. These air plants will also want plenty of good air flow and bright indirect sunlight.
When in bloom, the fuzzy T. paleacea will omit a violet flower. These are prolific clumping air plants and will produce offsets at its base.
We currently have Tillandsia paleacea available as single air plants or in small clumps.
