Tillandsia recurvata


Tillandsia recurvata, this plant exhibits both anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties it's known as Ball Moss or Old Man's Beard, is an epiphytic air plant characterized by its slender, gracefully curving leaves. Native to the southern United States, Mexico,Jamaica and parts of Central America, this resilient bromeliad thrives by absorbing nutrients and moisture from the air. With a unique silvery-gray appearance, it forms spherical clusters that resemble miniature ecosystems. Despite its name, it's not a true moss but rather a fascinating example of nature's adaptability, requiring minimal care and showcasing a distinctive beauty.

This is one tillandsia that would be quite suited to live in a terrarium as it grows well in areas with low light, little airflow, and high humidity..

this plant really only needs one watering per week.. I shall keep you all updated as to the progress of our seedlings.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this plant will go to cancer research it is something very close to

Us at Orchid Botanics and we feel strongly about it so we would like to give back to help others. ❤️‍🩹
