Looking after your Tillandsia

Tillandsia are part of the bromeliad family and come from South America. They make great houseplants loving warm temperatures up to 30ºC and are very easy to look after. Tillandsia thrive in sites which have superior airflow, and so it is important to provide a well-ventilated position for your plant to remain healthy. They also enjoy bright but diffused light, so a bright room with lots of skylights would be ideal.

In the wild, Tillandsia (like orchids) absorb water through their aerial roots so it is very important not to over water them. In fact the drier you keep these plants the more dramatic their curls! From spring until autumn, water with no more than ¼ of a teacup of water once a week allowing them to dry out completely before watering again. Alternatively, you can mist the leaves and top of the soil a couple of times a week and they will absorb the water this way.

During the winter your plant will only need watering very occasionally, and only when it is very dry. Avoid watering it altogether if temperatures drop to 12ºC as they can remain wet for too long at low temperatures.

Once Tillandsia have reached maturity and flowered, they will die, but not before producing young plants from the base. The mother plant once it has died completely, can be removed, leaving the offsets to grow on.
