About Tilly

If you're looking for the ultimate low-maintenance house plant then Tillandsia air plants may just be the one. Unlike many plants, air plants obtains their water and nutrients through their leaves rather than through a root system and as a result they're an incredibly adaptable plant perfectly suited to hanging!

Details

Our Tillandsie air plants come in green and red and measure 8-10cm in width and height.

LIKES

Due to their Latin-American roots, air plants are happiest in a well-lit spot but won't mind if the sun isn't directly shining on them.

DISLIKES

Getting too soggy so be careful when watering.

LOOKING AFTER THIS PLANT

The best way to water an air plant is to simply fill a bowl with tepid water and leave them to soak for an hour once every two weeks from spring to autum and once a month in the winter. After they're soaked, leave them out to dry before putting it back in the planter. Alternatively use one of our misters and give them a spritz once a week.
