Tillandsia Jumped into my cart
I was getting groceries this morning, and this Christmas ornament caught my eye. You can see it on the left in my pix. It has some white stuff, I'm not sure if it's moss or some artificial stuff. I picked this Tillie because it has lots of red and the leaves have a nice curl. When I got it home, I discovered the Tillie was standing in water! Someone had watered the globe, and I know that isn't good for airplants. I pulled it out and pulled off most of the moss. Now it's drying in my plant stand.
I would like to know if I should pick off the rest of the white stuff? It's glued to the outer leaves, and I might remove the leaves along with the moss.
If I can get the globe cleaned, could I put the Tillie back and remove it when I mist it? Right now I just want to let the poor thing dry out. It was really sopping wet.
Thanks for any input!
