Named for the Greek goddess Medusa and her hair of snakes! Caput Medusae is one of our most popular tillandsia. The leaves are smooth and project up and out from a bulbous base. A very unusual species of air plant native to Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama and sometimes called the Octopus plant. When Medusae blooms you will be amazed by her blushing leaves and bursting bloom. These air plants are 4 to 6 inches tall and 3 to 4 inches wide.
The main image may be a blooming plant. We will ship budding or blooming specimens when available but they are very limited. Half the fun is watching and waiting for your new friends to display their colors. Join our email list for updates on our currently blooming inventory.
