Tillandsia care: 10 expert tips for taking care of your Tillandsia

Tillandsia also known as air plants grow differently than most other houseplants, so they can be confusing for the beginner. They are really strong, and require much less attention than other houseplants.

1. Watering

Tillandsia grooming

Watering a Tillandsia is a little different than with a potted plant. The easiest way is to immerse the plant in water. Preferably rainwater at room temperature. You can easily leave the plant floating on the water for an hour.

2. Water adequately

Be sure to water the little plant regularly.

3. Let the plantlets dry thoroughly

After spraying or dipping, let the plant drain upside down on a piece of kitchen paper. This will ensure, that it doesn't stay wet between the leaves and thus prevent mold and rot.

4. Pitch

Air Plants

Actually, little plants do well anywhere in the house. Because the plant is not in a pot, you can go in any direction with this easy mini-plant. Just watch out for too much sunlight. This could burn the leaves and dry out the plant.

5. Fertilization

Give your airplant an extra boost from time to time by spraying it with Tillandsia spray. This is not a substitute for rainwater but a bonus.

6. Pruning is not necessary

Air plant pruning

Air plants grow very slowly, so pruning will not be necessary. We can cut off any brown tips that eventually develop on the slightly older leaves.

7. Air supply

Since this plant lives off the air, it is important that the air plant gets enough fresh air (adequate ventilation). So make sure you do not place the plantlets in a closed ecosystem.

8. Temperature

Temperature air plants

Air plants do best at room temperature, around 20 degrees celcius. In any case, make sure the plants never get colder than 10 degrees celcius. And on hot days it is recommended to water the airplants a little more often.

9. Humidity

Air plants get their nutrition and moisture from the air. When humidity is low, the plants have a harder time getting all the nutrients they need from the air. For example, never hang the plants near a central heating system. This causes the plants to dry out quickly.

10. Avoid cold air flow

Airplants like fresh, moving air, but make sure they are not in cold drafts.
