What do most people do with air plants (Tillandsias) when they get them home? Stick 'em in a pot of dirt.
|Tillies Not In Dirt|
|T. caput medusae|
|T. argentea fineleaf|
All water and nutrition is absorbed through the trichomes on the leaves, but more about that later. For right now, Tillandsias belong in a dish, or a glass globe, or hanging off of something. It's fun to figure out what to do with each one.
The next Tillie post will be about light, then there will be one on water and nutrition. Enjoy your Tillies!
