    Maybe it's not humid enough then, or too hot, or too strong lights because the tips are turning brown and curling in on some of them.

    you should probably grow it outside then.

    I remember when we used to live in south FL, my Dad and I would find 'Air Plants' all over the place, some only the size of tennis balls and some the size of large ripe pinapples.
    Around here Spanish Moss is almost everywhere!!!!!!
    And in the FCAT I learned that spanish moss leaves an imprint of all of the compounds that are in the air, kinda like how our hair is basically a book that can tell people what drugs we've done. And that scientists are doing studies with them to see about how much of what is in the air.

    Pretty Darn Cool!! -

    Well, that's not really an option here, but I'll put most of my plants outside; eventually.

    Have you ever been to Chicago? It's like a slightly less extreme version of southern Canada (where I go camping). It's usually below 10 F in the winter, occasionally getting to -30 (it did this year), and gets up to the 90's a lot in the summer (it was in the high 90's and broke 100 last year I think for a week). So, I will, in a few months. The weather is very inconsistent here though

    I have had tillandsia bergeri outside all winter here in Cheshire in the UK. I have slightly cheated by hanging it on a palm tree where it is protected from frost a bit by the leaves - but we have seen -6c or more so it has done well. All my others go out all summer once the frosts have passed and only return to the greenhouse when frosts threaten - they do really well.

    Best regards

    Chris
