General Information

Tillandsias are exotic members of the Bromeliad family. They are found growing in the humid jungles of central and South America, yet are adaptable to a wide range of environments.

Tillandsias absorb water through tiny, sponge-like scales on their leaves. When wet, the tillandsia will be much darker in color than when it is dry. Mist the leaves, or dip the entire plant in water every few days. Distilled water is best for the tillandsia’s sensitive leaves.

Bright, indirect light is best.

Fertilize by misting with a mile diluted liquid fertilizer, once a month

Each rosette will produce just one long-lasting flower spike. The parent plant eventually dies after flowering, but is replaced by offsets which grow from the base of the original plant.
