Tillandsias are called air plants because their leaves trap water in the air for nourishment. Since their roots don't feed them, they grow without soil.
They are members of the bromeliad family and are native to Latin America. They are found clinging to rocks, tree branches, cliffs and even telephone lines. Tillandsias are hardy and adapt well to most "captive environments." With minimum care, you will watch your air plants grow, bloom and reproduce.
BASIC TILLANDSIA CARE
Light: Keep indoors in a bright, filtered light.
Watering: Soak for up to an hour weekly or mist heavily 1-3 times a week. Let the plant(s) dry out between waterings.
Fertilizer: In the Spring and Summer, soak weekly for 4-6 hours in Growmore Bromeliad and Tillandsia Food 17-8-22. In the Fall and Winter, do the same soak but monthly.
