Air Plant - Tillandsia capitata v. Domingensis
Also known as the Capitata Dominican Republic is a very rare miniture Air plant. It stays “in color” all year round. It doesn’t get very large but makes up for it in it’s striking maroon coloring and contrasting flower.
Ranging in size from from 2″ to 6″, it has softer leaves and likes a humid environment and bright light, no direct sun for this one.
Mist often to keep the leaves soft and standing upright, when it’s thirsty the leaves droop and fold in on themselves so you can tell when you need to spray. Do not allow water to sit in the cups of the leaves.
It is prolific and will grow fairly quickly compared to other Tillys.Works wonderfully in globe terrariums or vivariums
