BONUS ASSORTED MOSS BAG and FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $35! No code needed.

T. tectorum is a lithophytic bromeliad native to Peru and Ecuador. It is found within high elevations among the rocky cliffs of the Andes. The leaves are covered in long, white, velvety trichomes, which capture water and nutrients from the air. This fuzzy plant favors a dry climate and very bright light. It grows well indoors, close to a window. The inflorescence is soft pink with tubular violet flowers. Pups may emerge at the base of the plant.


Light: High light. May tolerate direct sunlight. Avoid super hot or intense afternoon light.
Water: Quickly dunk or thoroughly spray, then shake out any excess water and allow good air circulation. Soaking too long may discourage fuzzy growth.


Measurements given are for the diameter of the plant. Tillandsia orders come with a care card.


Standard shipping is $5 (regardless of how many items you purchase!). Orders over $35 qualify for free shipping!

Track your order and bring your package in as soon as possible!

Your plants will be traveling in a dark, dry box for many days, so please open your package and water them immediately. Please note that plants need time to acclimate to new environments and need a few days to open up and stretch their leaves out. Some plants may drop some leaves or look droopy due to the stress of shipping, but please be patient and allow some time for your plant to perk back up!
Please track your package and bring it indoors as soon as possible. Plants are living organisms and may wilt or die if left in a hot mailbox for too long.
We require adding a 72+ heat pack to your order for packages being delivered to areas that fall below 40 degrees. Please track your package and bring it indoors as soon as possible.
This year we’ve been making big changes to the way we operate our business and ship out orders. We’re moving towards using recyclable packaging materials in all of our orders and reducing our plastic waste. Our packing peanuts are made of organic storage and are 100% biodegradable. Our packing tape is made of kraft paper and is recyclable. Any bubble wrap or plastic air pockets in your package are reused materials which originally come from our own deliveries or donations.
As we’re making choices to reduce CO2 emissions on the shipping of our goods, we’ve decided to stop shipping plants in soil. They are very heavy, require a lot packing materials, and take up a lot of space on delivery trucks. To reduce our impact on CO2 emissions, we’re moving towards carrying plant plugs and cuttings, which are very small and lightweight.

    So unique and different than all my other plants. As fragile looking as it is, you can see not one piece is broken or bent. Really happy with the packing, speed of shipping, health of the plant and the bonus moss pack, which was a nice surprise. The gold moss really sets off the white. I definitely recommend this shop/seller. Sincerely, a Very happy plant momma!

    Fun little fuzzball. Looks white, but turns green when watered, only to turn back white again when it dries out. The plants from Spyloh are all healthy and beautiful. I would not hesitate purchasing from this shop. Great source for Tillandsias. Shipped fast and well packed too.
