Tillandsia durati - On wire - Air Plant
Tillandsia duratii is an air plant that is quite resilient and can flourish under a variety of light, water, and temperature conditions. With appropriate amounts of moisture and light, it can reach considerable size with minimal curling of its leaves. By restricting water intake or mounting it by hanging it with wire, its foliage can form an attractive cascade. The flowers are usually a lilac colour. This beauty, on wire, creates a rustic and ready-to-hang display.
Air plants are technically epiphytes, growing in nature on another tree, host, or object. However, they don’t steal nutrients from their host. Air plants use tiny vessels located throughout their leaves called trichomes to capture nutrients and moisture from the air.
Air Plant Care
Keep your air plants happy in bright indirect light. Mist them thoroughly twice a week. Alternatively, dunk the plant face down in a sink or bowl of water and let it soak for 20 minutes, once a week. Shake excess water from the plant, to prevent any rot.
To ensure they receive the nutrients they need, add air plant fertiliser when you mist or soak them. We recommend using EasyGro Foliar Feed for Air Plants / 1 heaped scoop per litre of water.
