 The Tillandsia, is a member of the Bromeliad family. They are epiphytes like most orchids and need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. Tillandsia roots are used only as anchors. As a tropical plant they prefer warm sunny conditions, the thicker the leaves and the more gray their color, the more light they need. A minimum humidity of 50% is recommended though you can compensate with more frequent watering. Water by drenching as misting is usually not enough. One to 2 times a week, just make sure plant is not always moist, let dry out between watering as they will rot. Feed with liquid fertilizer at least once a month, be sure to wet plant first. Mount on anything, driftwood, shell, rock and some even on mesh hung with string will form a Tillandsia Ball.
