Winter Tillandsias

wsandrewkimmNovember 18, 2012

Hi all,

I live in an area that gets very cold in the winter time (in the celsius negatives during the coldest days) and it snows a lot. The problem is is that I have a few air plants (Ionantha Mexican, Ionantha Ionantha, and a Stricta) and I have no idea how to get them fresh air, lots of sunlight, and proper humidity without them freezing to death or drying up. My Ionanthas have begun to brown at the tips of their leaves and I was wondering if that was due to the lack of humidity.

Long story short, how do I keep my Tillys happy and healthy during cold winter seasons without them freezing?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I move mine in and out during winter as temps go up or down
