Because they don’t require soil, Tillandsia appeal to the creative nature of millennials, the “maker” generation. A generation that values the unique and one-of-a-kind, this younger set of air plant enthusiasts find joy in the endless creative ways these plants can be displayed. While most Tillandsia species are easy to grow, they do require some care and a proper environment in order to thrive. In the following sections, we will cover all aspects of caring for and growing your Tillandsia. Determining Air Plant Care The most common misconception about air plants is that they don’t require any care at all.

Air plants do not steal nutrients from their host, however, and only use their root system to anchor to their host as a home on which to grow. Air plants absorb nutrients through their leaves, using tiny hair-like vessels called trichomes to capture nutrients and moisture from the air in their environment. The major factors when it comes to Tillandsia health are: air, light, and water.

The roots are solely used to anchor the plant to its host, and aren’t required for nutrient intake. It just depends what you wish to do with the plant—sometimes those roots can be useful for displaying your air plant if you want to use them to help anchor the plant (for example, on a wreath or frame). The root system will grow back over time. Common Tillandsia Health Issues Pests and Ailments Most Tillandsia are very resilient to pests, but there are several types of pests that can affect your Tillandsia.
