Commonly known as air plants, the genus Tillandsia includes a diverse range of mostly epiphytic plants that, in their natural habitats, survive attached to other plants. Their lack of a substantial root system means they’re rarely grown in pots with soil, and instead are attached to cork bark or rocks, or can even be placed individually on a windowsill.

Tillandsia tectorum 'Snow' is a charming cultivar grown for its fuzzy appearance, provided by a dense layer of white trichomes on the surface. In its native range of Peru and Ecuador it grows on rock faces and outcrops, receiving very little in the way of nutrients and water.

For best results, grow Tillandsia tectorum 'Snow' in bright light out of direct sun. The only watering this species needs is a misting every few weeks, ideally with rainwater.
