Greetings. I'm visiting from the bonsai forum. Here's my problem:
On impulse, I just bought a Tillandsia in a 4" nursery pot and lots of instructions about how easy it is to look after. But then I read contradictory advice: Tillandsias don't like to be wet, just "misted"; Tillandsias like their roots in spongy most soil; they like bright light, they don't like strong light.... (I do know they don't like direct sunlight).
Mine is the green kind with a lovely pink/fuchsia fan/flower/topknot -- very cute.
For now I've moved it to a ceramic pot about 6" tall, 4" wide with all'purpose potting soil, watered it in and misted its leaves a bit. I've placed it under a "grow light" with African Violets and other indoor plants. This may be all wrong or it may be perfetct.
Can anybody help me with clear instructions?
Many thanks, Krys
