Below we collected the additional care tips to help you grow a healthy and beautiful plant. Read everything carefully and start putting it into practice.
A good rate of humidity is 80-90%. Spray tillandsia as often as possible and be sure to use soft water. When the air is dry, it is better to put the flower in a special florarium, so it will be much easier to maintain the humidity in the norm.
During the growing season, the plant is fertilized every 4 weeks. Use liquid fertilizer for bromeliads. If your plant grows on decaying bark, and not in a standard pot, then it needs minimal doses, since it is that bark that will provide it with the necessary trace elements.
Do not use conventional fertilizers, as the nitrogen contained will simply destroy the flower. Organic, too, cannot be used, even in minimal quantities.
The necessary fertilizer is diluted with water for irrigation or spraying, and the procedure itself is carried out.
A newly purchased plant needs a transplant, but if it has an inflorescence, then this stage should be postponed.
It is worth considering that under natural conditions the plant does not grow in the ground, but on snags or tree trunks. Therefore, it is better to choose a bark of 1-2 centimeters for transplanting. If you want to grow tillandsia in a pot, then you should choose a special mixture from akadama or give your choice in the direction of seramis-granulate. The pot should be almost miniature, and the protruding roots can be cut off.
