Our Tillandsias - What do we ship?

We grow our grey-leaved tillandsias outdoors, here in Tenerife. We start them by dividing large adults, so they are all "XXL" in size. They grow exposed to full sun, rain and wind during the winter months and we shift them to morning-to-midday sun during the hot months. By doing so they become very robust.

Tillandsias are extreme epiphytes that typically do not like to be planted in pots. Most of them prefer to be hung on branches or wires. We do not provide any support with the plant that we ship so be prepared to fix your airplant. We recommend to tie them with nylon fishing line, or metal wire as a second option. We never use glue, since it can cause problems.
