Tillandsia are exotic plants native to the tropics, with over 700 different species and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
Air plants are nearly indestructible and will survive in just about any environment which is perfect for beginner gardeners or people that tend to kill their houseplants! They are also compact in size and don’t take up a lot of room which is great for those with space constraints. Most importantly, air plants are unbelievably low maintenance! In fact, they are by far the easiest plants to grow because they don’t need water or soil to grow; the leaves get their nutrients from the air, hence the name.
Unlike other houseplants, air plants don’t need to be grown in a pot. They are typically found mounted onto a variety of decorative surfaces, including cork, slate, rocks and driftwood or grown in terrariums. Group them in masses for the best visual effect. Air plants are also more than happy to live on the leaves or branches of garden trees and shrubs, and even rocks!
