The Tillandsia streptophylla flower has a lovely pink tint. The center of the plant turns pink in color throughout the blooming time, earning it the name blushing plant.

Air plant lovers adore this variety as Tillandsia streptophylla care is minimal. As they thrive well in dry conditions, these plants do not need frequent watering. You can mist them a couple of times a week if the climate is mild. On the contrary, if you live in dry arid regions, it is best to soak your Shirley Temple in water for ten minutes once every week! Do not forget to let the plant dry out after watering.

T. streptophylla is not rooted in the soil. Fertilize once a month by mixing your fertilizer with water.

This interesting and unusual variety of air plants belongs to the hardiness zone of 9 to 11.

Tillandsia streptophylla plants grow at their best in indoor settings. They prefer bright indirect light. Avoid placing them outside in direct sunlight.

You can propagate these air plants by seeds or by separating offsets known as pups.

When the leaves of Shirley Temple are dehydrated, the edges curl outwards towards the base and make tighter ringlets. Streptophylla care is easy to manage, making it a must-have even for beginners. Add one to your collection right away!
