Tillandsia, or air plants, are fantastic as a house plant. They require relatively easy care and can handle a little neglect. In the wild, Tillandsia grow in the crooks of tree branches, but they are just as at home indoors. Tillandsias are epiphytes, which means that they grow on another plant, and are not parasitic to the host plant. They absorb water and nutrients into their leaves and roots from the surrounding air.
Tillandsias prefer bright, indirect light. Never place them in full sun. If you need to supplement low natural light, any full spectrum light bulb will work. Place the light no more than three feet from the plant for no more than 12 hours a day.
