Epiphytic plants are among the most fascinating of all tropicals because they do not require soil to grow. Because there is no soil, watering is, in the main, via humidity. Tillandsias are a group of epiphytic plants that are native to South and Central America. These plants grow without soil in the tops of trees and on rocks in a variety of conditions. These plants absorb their moisture through tiny spongelike tentacles that cover their leaves. Tillandsias enjoy high light and good air circulation. After blooming the plant will put out new offsets (pups) from between the leaves at the base of the plant.Water it 3 times a week by misting, allow plant to dry between watering. It likes bright indirect light or full light.
The Bonsai Topiary Airplant Tree you are purchasing is like the one in the picture. The Tillandsia clump is approximately 6 inches wide and from bottom of pot to top of clump it is 10 inches tall. The 3" pot is ceramic and the tree trunk is wood. The Bonsai is mulched with live Spanish Moss, another type of Tillandsia.
