How do i plant my Tillandsia

DO NOT plant your Tillandsia in soil! Putting Air Plants in soil will kill them.

Can I Grow my Air Plants Indoor?

YES, but place them close to a window or in a bright part of the home, so they can receive enough light.

How much light do Air Plants need?

Give your plants enough bright natural light so they can color, without having them in direct sunlight. More light = More color.

How often do Air Plants flower?

Tillandsia only bloom once in their lives, but that isn’t the end of your plant. Your Tillandsia will start ‘pupping’ (having babies). Air Plants can have between 1 – 12 pups which will grow to replace the mother. You can either separate the pups after they are about an inch long or let them grow with the mother plants and they will form beautiful clumps

Can I mount my plants on driftwood (or cork, or whatever) ?

You can mount your plant virtually anywhere you like, as long as the mount doesn’t hold water. Don’t mount on pressure treated lumber, or anything containing copper.  Copper is toxic to Air Plants.

Do i need to water Air Plants?

Like all plants, Air Plants need water.  In their native habitat, Tillandsia take in water from rainfall, atmospheric moisture, coastal fog etc.  Air plants in the home need a little help, as most homes don’t have the required humidity and certainly lack the rainfall and coastal fog!  Tillandsia can be watered either by misting or soaking them.  For most species a light misting a couple of times a week along with a fortnightly soak is good.

How can Air Plant survive without roots?

Tillandsia only use their roots to anchor themselves to a surface. They absorb all their water and nutrients through the trichomes on the leaf of the plant.

My Air Plant gets a silver sheet on it. Is there something wrong with it?

No, this is normal. What you are seeing is the Trichomes opening. Trichomes act as little mouths for the Air Plant that collect water and nutrients. When the plant has enough water it will turn bright green and the Trichomes will close. The process begins again as the plant dries.

I am going on a week long vacation. Will my Air Plant survive?

Absolutely. In the wild, Air Plants can go weeks without rain. They can hold onto water they collect for extended periods. Just give them a good long soak right before you leave and right when you get back and they’ll be just fine.
