Air plant lovers unite! Some call them tillandsias or tillys and I’m sure you’ve seen them around because they’ve been a favorite for years now. Maybe you’re already a tillandsia fanatic and want to turn a friend on to them. I have you covered as to what you need to grow as well as to display them. Warning: they’re addictive and fun to play with!
While tillandsia is their botanical first name, they’re commonly called air plants because they don’t grow in soil. Because of this, they’re very versatile and easy to care for. They’re perfect for apartment dwellers, design aficionados, beginning gardeners and busy plant lovers with little time to water.
No matter if you’ve been a tillandsia lover for a while or you are just starting your collection of tillys you’ll be sure find something of use from our round up of products.
