From Right to Left: Bulbosa (Belize), Xerographica, Ionantha X Brachycaulos hybrid, Pair of
Ionantha Guatemala, Caput Medusae, Pair of Funckiana, Andreana, Tricolor (the one I killed), and a Single Ionantha Guatemala. The top is covered with Spanish moss (this has to be misted every/everyother day).
I bought an air plant and proceeded to start killing it with love. I sprayed it every day- woops. My poor plant started to rot at it's base from sitting water.
Tillandsias need to be soaked (I do it once a week) in bottled water. I soak them for 30 min- 1 hour and then shake them dry and leave them crown down for about 4 hours.
It is really amazing to watch the leaves change from white to bright green as they are absorbing water.
I keep mine 6-10 feet from a window on a South-West window.
My favorite is the Xerographica
I also like the Ionantha X Brachycaulos hybrid. It has a pretty pink hue to it.
Tillandias are bromeliads.
