Tillandsia is a genus of around 650 species of evergreen, perennial flowering plants in the family Bromeliaceae, native to the forests, mountains and deserts of northern Mexico and south-eastern United States, Mesoamerica and the Caribbean to mid Argentina.They have naturally been established in diverse environments such as equatorial tropical rain forests, high elevation Andes mountains, rock dwelling (saxicolous) regions, and Louisiana swamps, such as Spanish Moss, a species that grows atop tree limbs.
Airplant is a common name for plants in this genus.
Care: The key to air plant survival is constant air circulation, as its name indicates. Water your plants about once a week or once in 1.5 week (basis local whether)—some varieties can go two weeks without being watered. Keep an eye on them to determine what exactly your plant needs.
