INDOOR PLANT - Giant Tillandsia - Cotton Candy Airplant
Air plants (Tillandsia spp.) are epiphytes, meaning that in nature they grow on other plants, usually on tree branches. There are hundreds of species and varieties of air plants. They usually have strap-shape or slender triangle-shape leaves that grow in a rosette pattern with new growth appearing from the center.
The Cotton Candy Airplant is our largest airplant and looks fabulous sitting atop a funky vase or vessel. A super interesting gift idea for young and old (and everyone in between!)
Air plants seem almost otherworldly the way they can grow, well, just in air. Yep, no soil at all required. Sure, these fun and trendy plants don't need soil, but they do still need a little attention. Here's what you need to know to keep them thriving.
As a general rule, keep your air plants out of direct sunlight. Remember, in the wild, many air plant species like to grow up in the sheltered, shady canopy of trees. They will do best if you can put them in a brightly lit spot out of the sun's rays.
Air plants don't have roots like other plants—they only have a few short ones which are meant to help hold it onto whatever surface it's on. In their native habitats across the Southern US, Mexico, Central and South America, air plants get what they need from high humidity and plentiful rainfall. In your home, these plants will want misting or soaking every 1-2 weeks during summer, much less often in winter. Keep an eye on them to determine when your plants seems to need a drink.
