Capitata Dominican Republic

Size
  • Tillandsia Capitata is an easy-to-grow air plant native to Dominican Republic. It is the smallest variety of Capitata, only reach 3-5 inches tall, but it is one of the most beautiful species. It keeps its beautiful maroon color all year round. Capitata produces offsets readily and is known for its prolific pupping tendency. After this air plant blooms vibrant purple flowers, it will die but the offsets (pups) grown around its base will continue the life cycle.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Bright filtered light.

    No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.

    Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Capitata will also benefit from a soaking bath every month. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent rot.
  • Zone 10 (30F)
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

    I love them! They came in great condition! The air plant was a little smaller than I thought it would be but otherwise all was good!
