I am a new tillandsia owner :) I've read websites on tillandsias and the proper care needed for them and I've got a basic idea of how to care for it! I do have a few concerns though. I've read that they need to dry out inbetween watering so my concern is that when I purchased the Tillandsia it was sitting in a pot of stagnant water and pebbles. I will try to add a pic so I can get feedback. My other issue is the coloring on the plant. The tips are a red color that seems to be rubbing off giving me the idea that it was sprayed on for novelty purposes. If the color is artificial then is the plant in any danger? Is the bottom of the plant that sat in water already rotted? Please help! I need some advice!
