The Tillandsia tricholepis has leaves that are slender and long, which form a structure similar to that of a mistletoe and curve upwards at each end. These elongated leaves are covered in much tinier pointy leaves, and are light green in color; they are more or less uniform in length but do not grow towards a singular direction. Instead, the leaves intertwine together because they all grow towards different directions. Small yellow flowers bloom amongst the plant’s many spiky leaves, giving the plant a summery and bright dash of color. This plant has a simple color scheme, but its unique structure draws in attention, while its flowers further complement that said structure.
