First of all, what are Tillandsia? They are better known as air plants, and they come in several different varieties. The sizes, shapes and colors are phenomenal, so using them in arrangements around your home or office is not only beautiful to enjoy, but also so fun to make.
The big thing to know about keeping your tillandsia happy and healthy is to keep them in a high light environment. Don’t fry them in hot, direct summer sun, but make sure they receive several hours of bright, filtered light. They also require regular watering. I soak mine for an hour once a week, and I’ll link to the video I made showing my watering process. Misting alone is not enough, unless you live in a very humid environment.
I hope this inspires you to try making some of your own air plant arrangements. Now there’s a way to use all those pretty planters that lack drainage.
