Tillandsia caput-medusae - The plant looks like the head of Medusa!

 Tillandsia caput-medusae
   This great plant clearly got its name from Medusa’s head. We find this one especially interesting to grow; the amount of water it gets greatly affects how curled the leaves are. Less water will yield curlier leaves and more water will yield straighter ones, but be careful! The base of the leaf is like a cup and can hold a lot of water – you need to empty it after watering, or grow it in a position so the water can’t collect there (or it will rot). BEAUTIFUL blooms, too!
