Airplant is the common name for the genus Tillandsia, a member of the Bromeliad family. All Tillandsia can grow without soil as they take all of their water and nutritional requirements through little scales on their leaves, known as trichomes. They are easy to care for just needing air, light and water. Tillandsia are native to South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico and the Southern States of the USA. Depending on the species they grow either on trees (epiphytically), rock faces (saxicolously) and some on the ground (terrestially). They do have roots, but only use these to anchor themselves. Tillandsia come in many different shapes and sizes, with over 500 species currently identified. The characteristics of Tillandsia species vary depending on whether they grow naturally in the rainforest, mountainous regions or deserts. This means that there is a Tillandsia to suit all tastes. Although the attraction of the plants is usually the architectural structure of the plant, they will all produce flowers, many of which are highly colourful and attractive.
Tillandsia are very adaptable and can be treated as both exotic tender perennials for the garden, as well as houseplants. As there is no need for soil, the options for displaying Tillandsia are limitless. Whether you are looking for a traditional or a contemporary display there will be an Airplant for you. The only limitation is imagination....
