The Tillandsia Caput-Medusae enjoys more direct sunlight and less water than their cousins. During the blooming time, spikes of cherry red develop before the blooms of deep purple that last about three weeks. 

Their botanical name gives the nod to the Greek female monster (Medusa) with snakes as hair. The leaves on this Tilly resemble the twisting and shape of the hair. If you don't like that image, then some call them an Octopus Plant! Either way, the leaves twirling and curling make them look like they are swimming. Set them in a sea urchin shell and surround them with sand for a theme!
