The Tillandsia Stricta is native to Venezuela, Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, northern Argentina, growing either on both the sands of beach dunes and in trees. This air plant is an evergreen, clump-forming and short-stemmed Tillandsia species with leaves arranged into thick rosettes. The Tillandsia Stricta could differ from soft leaved specimens to much harder, stiffer types and different coloured forms from light green leaves to silvery leaves.
The Tillandsia Fasciculata is mostly known for its bigger size within the family of Air Plants. It is also referred to as the giant airplant or cardinal airplant. This air plant species originally grows in Central America, Mexico, parts of South America and even Southern states within the United States. The Fasciculata could also grow a very beautiful red/purple flower, whereas we get these air plants before the flowering stage to our main location in The Netherlands where the cultivating continues. We are happy to provide you with this unique Fasciculata air plant, as it comes in two different sizes.
The Tillandsia Magnusiana is a gentle and perhaps the most grayish species within the epiphyte family. With its many and thin hairy leaves that have a spherical appearance, the Magnusiana is unique in its kind. Because of to the flatter bottom and leaves that keep the plant balanced, the Tillandsia Magnusiana is easy to put down steadily and therefore very easy to use in various decorations.
The Tillandsia Magnusiana grows only in a limited number of countries in the wild. As it grows in the south and west of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Corsa plant also cultivates this Tillandsia species on its farms in Central America, and ships the Tillandsia Magnusianas to the Netherlands before the plant begins with its flowering phase.
The Tillandsia Usneoides, also known as Spanish moss, is a plant without roots from the epiphyte family. This plant gets its water and nutrients through its leaves from the (moist) air and raindrops. The Tillandsia Usneoides has curly grayish and long down-growing leaves that mostly hang over the branches of trees. The beauty of this kind is that it spreads itself and living area by the help of Mother Nature. Mainly by wind or birds, this air plant is being moved and spread to other branches for example and so continues to develop and grow in other places, which is very different from our other air plants.
The Tillandsia Usneoides mostly lives in tropical areas with high humidity and under the right circumstances can grow to a length of 1 to 2 meters! The original habitat of this plant ranges from Argentina to southeastern United States.
