This listing is for the super cute and curly Tillandsia streptophylla. These are very interestingly shaped little plants. When you water them more they grow wavy, and when you water them less, they get very curly! When they bloom, they blush a bright pink and have giant bloom spikes. The bulbous base of the plant may shift to brown as the plant matures. Plants are living organisms and no two are exactly alike!
Seedling 1” (may not be curly yet)

I love all air plants and this is one certainly healthy. I was under the impression that I was getting a curly plant like the one in the picture but mine is growing in super straight. Still a beautiful plant but even with me trying to “shape it” it is straight. :(
This streptophylla was purchased as a 2". It is a 3". The directions for its proper handling were precise so that I did not ruin the plant as it should be run under water but NOT soaked the way other Tillandsias are. The fact that you can curl it and shape it the way you want it to grow while it is damp is just amazing for this old botanist. That is exactly what I did, and the leaves were happy to be rearranged to be a bit more curly. What an awesome plant! So happy I bought from this vendor who got me started off right on the first day and beyond with a perfect specimen.
Nice size and quality Tillandsia air plant. Love it! The plant looks just as depicted. I’m happy with my purchase, recommend vendor to Etsy buyers!
