Very Rare Giant Tectorum Ecuador

Giant Tillandsia Tectorum are a must have for any air plant collector. These large specimens are absolutely breathtaking. The overabundance of trichomes gives this plant a bright, white fuzzy appearance. Leaf forms can vary from a straight form to plants with a slight curl of the leaves. When the Tectorum plant blooms they produce beautiful purple flowers. 

Tillandsia Tectorum likes to be misted lightly weekly in a drier climate if there isn't sufficient dew in the morning or a mid-level of humidity. It needs to dry rather quickly so a light to medium mist is sufficient. It does not do well in high heat with heavy humidity since it needs to dry sufficiently. Make sure it gets lots of air circulation if outdoors in humid conditions.

Care Note: To prevent rot, do not soak this species in water. Instead, spray with water once or twice a week. Read our Air Plant in Focus blog post for more detailed information about Tectorum Ecuador.
