The Tillandsia deserves its name because of the many, long, colorful leaves. The Tillandsia is native to South America. In the drier forests where this plant grows, there is only 2 to 3 times a year rainfall, so this plant is ideal to maintain.
These decorative and often bizarre plants are only found in South America. Most Tillandsias grow, often together with orchids, on trees or cacti. However, they are parasites because with their exceptional gift they crystallize the necessary moisture and food from the air. They do not demand a breeding ground to live, which makes this Tillandsia quite easy to maintain.
From early June to late September, Tillandsias can easily be hung outside or placed in partial shade. This plant is considered one of the strongest plants in the world. They can tolerate almost all large temperature differences from approx. 4.C to 45.C. Tillandsias are an excellent decoration, even in the most modern interior. The Tillandsia is also an environmentally friendly plant. It is not sprayed with pesticides. As maintenance only one tip: spray twice a week with water.
