As I previously mentioned, T. tectorum has the most spectacular trichomes - the “hairs” or “scales” found on most air plants. They’re designed to capture water efficiently: even water droplets as small as mist get pulled in. An air plant appears becomes greener once it is fully moistened. When they are ready to look for more water, the trichomes open up in the span of an hour or two (the opening up part of this time lapse was taken over 3 hours, which I compressed to 6 seconds). Plants operate on a different timescale than animals, so time lapse photography helps us observe the fun things they do! #airplant #airplantlove #tillandsia #tillandsiatectorum #houseplants #indoorplants #houseplantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantlove #plantlife #plantsofinstagram #plantstagram #botanical #botany #greenery #timelapse #best_timelapse #hyperlapse
