Tillandsia Air Plants
Tillandsia Air Plants are epiphytes, meaning that in nature they grow on other plants, usually on tree branches. That means they do not need soil to grow. They get the majority of their nutrients from the air around them. There are hundreds of species and varieties of air plants. They usually have strap-shaped or slender triangle-shaped leaves that grow in a rosette pattern with new growth appearing from the center. They are native to the forests, mountains and deserts of northern Mexico and the southeastern United States, Mesoamerica and the Caribbean to mid-Argentina.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
