'Curly Slim' is a wacky variety of Tillandsia which looks like an octopus is trying to crawl its way out of a plant pot! When they are little you often see them being displayed in shells for this same reason.
There are more than 500 species of Tillandsia in the Bromeliad family, most are epiphytes (sold as 'Air Plants').
Epiphytes are organisms that grow on the surface of other plants and source moisture and nutrients from the air & rain.
Allow your Tillandsia to dry out completely between waterings, these plants are used to growing on the sides of trees as epiphytes and won't appreciate their roots staying damp for too long. They also want good air flow in their potting mixture & lots of bright light to thrive.
Light: Are content in a medium level light. However, bright, indirect light will encourage flowering and more vibrant foliage.
Water: Allow Tillandsia to dry out completely between waterings.
Food: Does not require much fertilising, during the growing season feed only once or twice with a half strength fertiliser.
Humidity: Can cope with a normal home humidity level but would prefer a higher humidity. We recommend grouping plants together or using the pebble tray method to raise humidity.
