Tillandsia

Tillandsias

My air plants arrived this week. They’re too small to put in the glass candleholders I’d found, but were just right for the two bonsai pots from the same secondhand store. I also got a bell cup to hold one of the tillandsia. Air plants care gives better information than I’d seen elsewhere; I’d been under the (mistaken) impression that a very humid room would be all right, with sprinkled water occasionally. But they need more water, and more directly than that!

There are larger photos of the rectangular pot with its brachycaulis abdita and three different ionantha, and the circular pot with its albertiana and ionantha rubra.
