Tillandsia or “air plant”

Tillandsia or Air Plant

To go with our “ Lolitas ” pot, here is an article on tillandsias.

This little plant doesn't need soil and looks so cute in our new Mimipots.

There are several varieties of tillandsias: Tillandsia stricta; Tillandsia ionantha; Tillandsia caput-medusae; Tillandsia cyanea; Tillandsia butzii...

In short, they are plants with few roots or none at all. watering is done through the foliage.

The average watering frequency is once a week in the summer season, and in winter the frequency is reduced.

A word of advice, water in the morning so that the plant dries during the day thanks to the sun.

One way to water it is to soak the tillandsia upside down in water for 5-10 min. Then, let it drain upside down to prevent the water from seeping into the heart of the plant and causing it to rot.

You can also spray it with water, but again, you have to be careful that there is no stagnation in the heart to prevent it from rotting.

Types of water:

  • Demineralised
  • rain
  • Fresh water that sat on the counter

The location is important, it needs a bright place, but not directly in the sun.

The temperature can vary between 10 and 30 degrees.

Tillandsias like well-ventilated and well-ventilated rooms.

Since they do not need substrates... they can be used decoratively or in rocks, moss, etc.

Here are some suggestions and inspirations:
