Frequent Watering

High Humidity


Tillandsia thrives in warm conditions between 50 degrees to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The most important thing is the humidity, they prefer warm, humid conditions to keep up with their moisture. Most household temperatures are adequate, just make sure your plant is not exposed to any cold drafts or temperatures in the winter.
