    Tillandsia ionantha mex & funkiana

    Hello guys! (Any lady here by the way??)

    Yesterday i was at the Montreal's botanical garden looking for some cps, but they only has a couple of d.aliciae, some d.spatulata and a dionea box.

    Then i saw these littles babys cryin"take me with you!"

    So, you know

    But im really new to this. I know they need a total water flood 2-3 times a week.
    Any tips/advices will be appreciated !

    B'lieve I have both in the greenhouse. I never soak any of my Tillies and they are all poppin' off new pups all the time, and many have bloomed, some more than once. Then again, the GH stays at 85% humidity all day, so that probably helps. I do thoroughly mist them every few days. Tillies are fantastically addicting and they're incredibly easy to care for in my experience. Awesome plants.

    I grow those two, actually just on my windowsill. I do a complete soak twice a week for a minute or two each, then put them right back on my windowsill right above my terrariums. I also mist them occasionally, but not too often. Bottom line, they're not very picky at all. My house has 55-60% humidity tops and they do just fine.

    I keep my tillie in with the orchids..some hang off the back of the rack, some tossed on top of the larger pot. I mist them bout every other day.
    Agreed, they can become slightly addicting.
