Tillandsias are low maintenance plants that only require water. Here at Plantaflor, we shower most varieties 1-2 times a week. We mist varieties Tectorum and Xerographica 1-2 times a week. Soaking is beneficial when trying a recoup a dehydrated plant. Fertilizer is not needed, but if desired use at an 1/8 of the recommended strength. Direct sunlight is not recommended, but often times will inspire color within some varieties. All of our plants are greenhouse grown, and need to be acclaimed before putting in sun. For detailed care instructions contact your sales person (more detailed tips also located in our variety information section) and they will be more than happy to answer any questions. Do not use soil for any tillandsia. It will harm the plant. Water depending on weather. More frequently when hot, and less frequently when cold.
