TILLANDSIA – Tillandsias are the most fascinating and certainly the most peculiar of all the Bromeliads.

They require little care if given a suitable environment – bright light to full sunlight, good air circulation and moist atmosphere. Most require seven years or longer to grow to flowering from seed.
