TILLANDSIA – Tillandsias are the most fascinating and certainly the most peculiar of all the Bromeliads. Highly variable, they may be bulbous, tufted, grass-like, or assume several other curious forms. Typically, they are plants of the air, dwelling in its treetop environment where the winds move freely. 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.
