Description: Tillandsia Houston is a hybrid cultivar of Stricta X Recurvifolia. It is a stunning silver variety with an accompanying bright pink inflorescence with lilac flowers. It is similar to Tillandsia Cotton Candy, however the leaves are thicker and more rigid. It grows fast and can produce a clump of offsets in a relatively short amount of time.
Position: They should receive bright, indirect sunlight. Indoors, an east or west facing window area is ideal. Outdoors under partially shaded conditions is fine but in the colder states protection from frost is required, so an undercover or indoors area is more appropriate.
Watering: As a general rule, a plant in a hot position will require watering every 2-3 days. In a dark, humid environment watering once per week can often be adequate. This can be achieved by misting or dunking the plant. If outdoors, a hose can be used. When dunking a plant, leave submerged in a bowl of water for 10-20 minutes before shaking off excess water. Air plants love to dry out completely between each watering and must never have water sitting at their base as this will cause the plant to rot.
Fertilisation: We recommend fertilising your Air Plants once a fortnight in the warmer months and once a month through winter.
Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape depending on the season.
