Time for Tilly's (Tillandsia or air plants)

Updated: Nov 5, 2020

I have to admit that I'm not the best at keeping air plants alive, but they are so versatile! Why not try 1 air plant on top of some decorative pebbles on a small dish. Setting the tillandsia on something flat lets them breathe. Don't put them in a glass bowl where they're almost enclosed. All they need are some indirect light and a weekly dunking in a tub of water. These funky plants are great for hallways and rooms that do not get a lot of sun to support typical houseplants. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, even striped ones. Try them!

I like how this guy explains how to care for them:
