Tillandsia are native to the warmer climates of the Americas. Commonly known as air plants, they are found from jungle, to rain forest, to arid desert environments – from sea level, to high mountain regions. Many of these unique plants undergo a dramatic color change as they prepare to bloom. Some have a very luscious and unequaled fragrance. Free delivery in Cluj-Napoca and Huedin.

If your Tillandsia's are going to be in your home or office, care must be taken to provide enough light and correct moisture to maintain a healthy plant. A South, East or West window would be best. Bright light or filtered sun is recommended. If these light conditions are not possible, a broad spectrum fluorescent light, such as an aquarium light, will provide short term light requirements for your plants. Monthly rotation of indoor plants with those grown in more favorable outdoor conditions, allows for continued color and vitality of the tillandsia in the home or office.
Indoor tillandsia's should stay healthy with a watering schedule of 2 to 4 times a week. However, it may be necessary to water more often due to dryer, less humid air caused by air-conditioning or heating. Plants grown in humid outdoor environments should be watered 2 to 3 times weekly. In dryer climates, more frequent watering may be necessary. Saturate the bromeliad completely until water runs off the plant – light misting is normally insufficient. Allow to dry completely between waterings. If your plant's leaves start to curl or roll (nature's way of conserving moisture), it could be an indication of dehydration. This can be corrected by completely submerging your plant in water overnight; then resume normal watering schedule. Softer, greener-leafed plants will require more frequent watering and a bit less sun than gray or silver-leafed plants.
Locate your Tillandsia's in a well-ventilated area as they love fresh moving air. The movement of air dries plants between waterings which helps to avoid any disease to over watering.
Fertilizing is not absolutely necessary to survival, but will increase the growth and vigor of your plants and their blooms. Tillandsias need a fertilizer that can be absorbed directly in to the plant via the leaves.
