I have mostly houseplants and cacti. I'm a beginner doing constant research, trying not to kill anything. USDA zones 8a and 8b.

Tillandsia

I have at least 3x more air plant holders than actual air plants. Partially because I've lost a few along the way. 😅😬 #airplant #tillandsia

Can I ask a stupid question - what's an air plant ? Love the pot

@charlotte No stupid questions! Air plants don't need soil. In fact, they will rot. They get nutrients from rainwater and leaf debris in their natural habitat. They cling to trees.

Ah yes . I remember now that rings a bell. I saw some in a botanic garden in Atlanta last year. Are they easy to grow ?

@charlotte Pretty easy as long as you remember to give them a bath once a week. 👍

A bath 🤔 like a spray ?

@crabby58 Nope, no dirt! They would get sick if you wet the soil.

@charlotte Either spraying or literally soaking them in a bowl of water (but never longer than 20 minutes!).

Sounds fascinating. Almost want to get one. Do we have these in the UK?

Small Plant Saturday: This air plant is still alive! It has shapeshifted from a swan to a cat, and its name is Tom. In memory of my first friend on Myspace.✌ #smallplantsaturday #airplant #tillandsia #houseplant

Day 8: Air Plant. I have a few to choose from, but I mainly chose this one because I love the holder. It was my grandmother's toothpick holder, and this air plant fits perfectly inside it. #plantvember #plantvemberphotochallenge #air-plant #tillandsia #houseplant

@heatherdirtyhands Thank you! I keep all my air plants on the same shelf with my 'most aesthetically pleasing' books. 😄
