Tillandsia, also know as "air plants", do not require soil to grow. The Streptophylla variety is also called the "Shirley Temple" because of its characteristically curly leaves. It is a silvery green color, and soft to the touch due to the trichomes covering the surface. The drier the air, the more curls the air plant will have.
Air plants enjoy a high humidity environment, and will thrive with occasional misting and a weekly "bath". Make sure to turn the air plant upside down to drain after a 20-30 minute soak. Learn More
