Tillandsia caput-medusae is named after the snake haired, Greek mythological character Medusa.
From Mexico and Central America, it is a striking species with lovely soft green leaves with purple edges to the lower leaves or sheaths. It has a bright red or less often green, flower spike that is branched and produces tubular purple flowers.
It likes high light levels or full sun and regular full covering of mist with good air movement, it responds well to a regular dose of fertilizer.
I have small and medium plants available and occasionally some giant specimens. You can see an example of the 3 sizes available in the images.
I've ordered several varieties of tillandsia from Andy. Since it turned out that some sizes I wanted were missing in his stock at the time of my order, he upgraded them. Now I am a happy owner of an XL tillandsia caput medusae and an extra tillandsia gardneri, along with a lovely collection of other very healthy and nice looking air-plants. I definitely recommend his shop to anyone! Thank you, Andy!
First class plant, first class size, first class delivery. All first class.

Beautiful healthy plant arrived well packaged and ready to join my little collection. Thank you Andy!
