The Tillandsia species are a group of smaller bromeliads and are easy to keep. The ""Air plant or "Sky plant", is very tolerant and a fascinating plant for a beginner. If it is well-cared for, the center of it's silvery-green bristles will turn fiery red followed by small violet flowers!
You can naturally find the Tillandsia ionantha in the tropical America's forests from Southern Mexico to Nicaragua. Look towards the sky.
You can send plants and flower arrangements almost anywhere in the world from Flowers and Plants Etc.
- Some direct sun is best. They can take full sun and will tolerate lower light for awhile but best to find a sunny window as a permanent place for them.
- Douse or soak them in water for a few minutes every few days. They tolerate less moisture but will last and show much better with regular waterings.
