Tillandsia setacea is widespread but not uniform. In the U.S.A., occurrence is restricted to Georgia and Florida, a small patch in Mexico on the Pacific coast, throughout the Caribbean, and in northern Brazil on the Atlantic coast. The localities are between sea level and 800m.


The description of the species is based on a plant discovered by Olof Swartz in Jamaica.
The plants, which are deposited in various herbaria from different locations under Tillandsia setacea, differ greatly in the size of the leaves.
