Tillandsias are commonly called air plants. They are in the bromeliad family and easy to grow and maintain. In the wild, they attach and grow on tree structures (epiphytic) and also on non-plant structures (lithophytic). 

Tillandsias have gain popularity as houseplants because they are portable, don’t root in soil, and don’t take up a lot of space.  They are easy to grow and maintain, but the care for one species is not a one-size-fits-all.  Like any other plant, each species has their unique care needs.  The tillandsia, contrary to its common name… “air plant”, needs light, water, and air circulation or it will die.  Growing this type of plant successfully requires knowing how much light, water, and circulated air to give your plant.
