Air plants are a wonderful option for those who dislike dirt! As a fantastic addition to any modern home, these live plants are low maintenance and are easily kept alive in a terrarium or on a shelf or desk space. Misting every few days is ideal, with the occasional soak for about 15 minutes. After soaking is finished, allow them to dry upside down for at least 4 hours before returning them to their display.

Air plants make wonderful additions to tropical bioactive enclosures, though they must be mounted on a branch or background. If they are planted in the soil, or in some cases, simply resting on the soil, they will rot. This is because air plants have adapted to growing above the soil, typically on other plants. Fishing line is a great way to mount the plants, though be sure to cut as much of the excess off as possible.
Believe it or not, this is the same species as your typical Tillandsia ionantha! The tough and rigid leaves would have you believing otherwise. When the plant begins to blush, it will have a beautiful red to contrast the lively green. The structure of this plant isn't like other Tillandsia, it will certainly give the contrast your collection needs!
