Air PlantBasic Tillandsia Care (Air Plant)

 

INDOORS: Keep in bright, filtered light. Soak or mist heavily 1-3 times weekly, depending on house humidity. Let plant dry between waterings.

OUTDOORS: Tillandsias (air plants) love to grow outdoors in spring and summer. Keep in bright, filtered light and soak or mist heavily 1-3 times weekly. Protect from frost and direct afternoon sun.

FERTILIZER: Soak or mist monthly during spring and summer with any water soluble fertilizer mixed no stronger than 1/4 strength. Fertilizers high in phosphorus help encourage blooming.

REPRODUCTION: Following the blooming period the plant will produce several offshoots called pups. They usually form around the base of the mother and can be separated after they have grown to be at least half her size. To separate, simply break off pup from mother at the roots - like pulling a banana off a punch. The new pups don't have to be separated and, if left intact, will form a beautiful cluster of plants.

MOUNTING: Attach Tillandsias (air plants) to any surface by gluing or wiring base of plant. If gluing, use a non-toxic, waterproof craft glue. Tillandsias don't have to be mounted to grow.

SPECIAL TIPS: Tillandsias thrive on good, fresh air circulation. If plants look dehydrated, soak them in water for 8 - 12 hours. Water them well, but don't keep damp.
