SIZE: This is a small species - they are only a few inches at maturity, but they can grow into large clumps like the last picture. We are currently selling them in the size pictured in the main profile image, around 3”.

DESCRIPTION: Myosura is a Bolivian species that is part of the miniature subgenus Diaphoranthema. All of the air plants in this subgenus are cleistogamous, meaning that they are self pollinating plants. The benefit of this is that myosura, along with the other miniature air plants in subgenus  Diaphoranthema, are not dependent on a pollinator to produce seed. This allows them to quickly reproduce and spread. Along with this, most of the plants in the miniature subgenus are also quick to produce pups, and myosura is no exception. There is a good chance the plant you receive us will have pups growing already.
