Airplants (Eng.), Lugplante (Afr.)
Tillandsia is the largest genus in the bromeliad family, containing approximately 650 of the over 2,500 species of bromeliads. Commonly known as air plants, they are found from jungle to rain forest to arid desert environments, from sea level to high mountain regions. Tillandsias are perennial, evergreen flowering plants from South America and the West Indies. Usually the thinner the leaf, the more water is needed. Always water your air plants in the morning and make sure to shake off any excess water before setting them out to dry.
