Tillandsia tectorum 'Snow' is a variety of T. tectorum with extra fine trichomes or hairs that give the plant a 'snow like' appearance.
Tectorum meaning of the roof or sky alluding to the fact that Peruvians cultivated this plant on roofs of houses, which helped to reflect the sun's rays. This is a beautiful species with a round shape and silver leaves with a dense covering of fine hairs or trichomes giving the plant a very soft appearance. The flower spike is quite long and attractive with pink bracts and purple flowers.
This species is easy to grow if given high light levels or as much full sun as you can give it and only a light, regular misting, with quick drying or very good air-movement.
I recieved this today and was absolutely thrilled to bits with it ! Large, healthy and beautiful, very well packed with care, this plant also has two small pups, an added bonus. Thank you Andy, I cannot recommend your plants highly enough.
Beautiful large plant in perfect condition.
I ordered a large Tillandsia Tectorum Snow from Andy and I was blown away with how large and beautiful the plant was when it arrived, complete with a little pup attached. Andy took a lot of care making sure that the plant was very well wrapped and packaged and it arrived safely. All the plants that I have ordered and bought from Andy so far, have all been very healthy and this one is no exception. I’m certainly going to be purchasing more air-plants from Andy in the future. The Tectorum Snow is one of my favourite air-plants in my ever growing collection! I can’t recommend Andy’s air-plants highly enough for those of you wanting beautiful, healthy air-plants!
Absolutely love this thing, and as always, Andy has provided the perfect example
Arrived safely beautiful plants and thanks for the free one.
