Tillandsia, also known as air plants, are unique plants that do not require soil to grow. They are native to the rainforests of Central and South America, and they grow attached to trees and other objects, using their roots only to anchor themselves.


Light: Tillandsia air plants prefer bright, indirect light. Place your air plant near a window that gets bright, filtered light, but not direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Tillandsia air plants need to be misted or soaked in water several times a week. To soak, place the plant in a bowl of water for about 30 minutes, then shake off the excess water. Be sure to let the plant fully dry before placing it back in its container or on its display.

Soil: As mentioned earlier, Tillandsia air plants do not need soil to grow. They absorb water and nutrients through their leaves.

Fertilization: Tillandsia air plants benefit from monthly fertilization with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Simply add a small amount of fertilizer to the water you use for misting or soaking.

Humidity: Tillandsia air plants prefer high humidity levels, so they are well-suited to bathrooms and other humid environments. If your home is dry, you can increase the humidity around your air plant by placing a tray of water near it or misting it regularly.

Temperature: Tillandsia air plants prefer temperatures between 60-90°F, with good air circulation. They can tolerate a wider range of temperatures, but they will not thrive in extreme heat or cold.

Propagation: Tillandsia air plants can be easily propagated by separating offsets, or "pups," that form at the base of the plant. Simply cut the offsets away from the parent plant and place them in a bright, well-ventilated area to grow.

Reblooming: Many species of Tillandsia produce colorful blooms, typically in shades of pink, purple, red, or yellow. The blooms usually last for several weeks and are followed by the production of new offsets.
