Should be watered two to three times a week by soaking or misting. Establishing a consistent watering schedule is essential. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent scorching.

Tillandsia are epiphytes - they are found high in the branches of trees, far from any soil - and so they are commonly called Air Plants. Tillandsia thrive in bright indirect light, preferably close to an eastern or western window exposure. We recommend watering your Tillandsia two to three times a week to establish a consistent watering schedule. Gently spray them in the sink or shower, first right side up, then upside-down, letting them drain in an upside-down position for an hour before returning them to their display.
