    Air Plant/Tillandsia Issues

    For awhile my air plants have been going brown at the tips, so I tried soaking them for longer. However, now one is getting brown spots on the leaves and it looks like the side of some of the leaves are deteriorating. Another one is becoming discolored (a black/purple color) on the side of some...

    Tillandsia Aeranthos help...

    Hello all. I'm new here. About 10 months ago I received as a gift a tillandsia aeranthos attached to a ceramic skull. I watered it every week or so, with hard water, overnight anywhere from 1-3 days depending on if I would remember to pull it out. It has also been in my kitchen the entire...

    Tillandsia seed germination.

    I took a trip to a nearby nursery today and found several tillandsia forming flower stalks :-O I took one home of course. Hopefully the flower will produce seed. What is the best way to pollinate tillandsia flowers and germinate their seeds?

    Where do Tillandsia come from?

    I often see bunches of Tillandsia for sale in stores and online. They are often mixed varieties and it got me thinking . . . where do all these tillandsia plants come from? Are these plants plucked from the wild, or there "air plant" farms that grow a variety of species?

    Mounting a bromeliad?

    Hey, terraforums. I want to mount a small bromeliad to some cork bark and add it to my gecko terrarium. Are they safe for crested geckos? Can bromeliads handle distilled water? I know that tillandsia can't take distilled water. Would a mounted bromeliad be ok being sprayed with distilled water...

    Hello from Belgium : )

    My name is Morgane, I'm 23 and I started growing carnivorous (and other) plants since last August. I already liked plants before, but the fact that I lived in a north oriented student room with a tiny window kept me from growing anything else than a bonsai. Now I live in a south-west oriented...

    Tillandsia watering

    I just bought some air plants for the first time and have been having a lot of trouble determining how often I should water them. It seems like every air plant store has completely different guidelines for how often to submerge them, from once a week to once a month, how often to mist them, and...
