Description How to Grow Delivery

Air plants or Tillandsia are unusual epiphytic plants. In their wild habitat they grow off the branches and trunks of host plants rather than in the ground. Their trailing foliage resembles octopus tentacles and as they have no need for soil they can be attached to shells or rocks for an intriguing and creative display. These hanging Tillandsia have been inserted into sea urchin shells and are perfect for humid bathrooms where they will look like floating jelly fish! Height and spread: 15-20cm (6-8in).

Harvest Months

1 x airplant in sea urchin (KB7596)

Hang your Tillandsia in a bright spot but not in direct sun. From spring to autumn, immerse the plant in rainwater for a few hours once a week, ensuring it fully dries off in between. Frequency of soaking can be reduced in winter. Misting with rainwater also helps the plant to keep hydrated in hot conditions. Keep above 12°C.
