    This just reminded me to get some tillies on eBay to decorate the GH. Very nice tillandsia you have! I love the one with the pink flower.

    Tillandsia plants really are amazing! Maybe this is how people first began to attempt hydroponics! (Key word: attempt. )

    Tillies most def addictive! I am a noob for sure with the tillies so none of this is truely a set method. I water probably twice a month with a sprayer usually at the same time I am top watering dews. Otherwise I turn the fogger on full blast maybe once/twice a week when I am working in the GH or the humidity drops significantly and I'm sure they nab alot of moisture from that as well. I keep RH at about 85% +/- about 5%. When I fertilize dews maybe once or twice per year with weak solution I make sure to hit the tillies with it at the same time. Not sure any of this is proper method because I have researched very little.

    If they're flowering like that, seems like you've got the light right. That's a nice sized T. bulbosa you've got too. I can highly recommend picking up a T. butzii for decoration too, it's one of the most colorful ones.

    As long as they get saturated when you water, long enough to absorb some of it before it evaporates off your watering is fine. Just be careful not to let water sit in the bases of the leaves as they can and will rot. That's the reason you see many people growing them downward, pretty much no rot ever. You can also just toss them all into a bucket of water with mild fertilizer 2x a month and let them sit for an hour.
