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.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. Keep them away from intense direct sun.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window.
Soak them in a bowl of room temperature water for an hour. Shake excess water off afterward.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist regularly. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Increase humidity with increased light to avoid dry out. Make sure they are in an area with good air circulation, do not put them in terrariums or enclosed containers.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
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.
