There are over 600 different species of air plants (Tillandsia) growing in many parts of the planet?
The majority of air plants live in humid and warm climates like rainforests. You can usually find them growing in trees or even rocks in Central and South America, Florida,
Air Plants are plants that do not require soil to survive since they are epiphytes. Tillandsias attach their roots to rocks or trees and they get their nutrients from water and air. These plants can also be glued or placed in different arrangements at home and live happily without ever having to pot them.
One of the most common mistake I have seen when caring for these plants, is not enough water or light. Sometimes they can even be mistaken for decorative (fake) plants. But Air Plants are humidity and light lovers.
Tillandsias are the most amazing plants, that are extremely resilient and easy to have at home, but they do grow a bit differently than other indoor plants. The following tips are some simple steps you can follow to start your Air Plant Journey.
