Best Answer
this is just my knowledge on trial and error, not sure if it will all work for you. but it sure helps me!!

they LOVE being soaked: maybe once every week or two just fill your sink and drop them in there for anywhere from 10 mins to an hour. thats how i water them, i do the same for my spanish moss.
but ps: let them dry completely inbetween soaks!!!

indirect outdoor light!!! we're lucky to have a nice patio with a roof type thing so we have a LOT of plants under there. its amazing how much they thrive with such little care.

what ive heard is once they flower they basically die, and if they have trouble flowering they grow HUGE like the second pic. and since they're not flowering i must be doing something wrong, but i kind of prefer it!

so to summarize bc i wrote a lot lol:
soak in sink once completely dried
keep in indirect light
and dont worry too much! ive killed SO MANY but id buy them in bulk and just see what helps and what doesnt. happy planting, or.. happy *not* planting? i dont know, they dont go in dirt
Oh!! @KikiGoldblatt has a bunch of properly identified Tillandsias!
@sarahsalith , @KikiGoldblatt , I’d love any tips! I’ve killed over $100 worth of AIRPLANTS!
@HyggeVibes 🀣 Live and learn! I can't tell you how much I've killed in dollars. I honestly don't even want to know!
@sarahsalith exactly!!!!
oh oh! i LOVE airplants! one second ill take some photos and then share some tips
@buglover72 featuring my dog as well!
@buglover72 - thanks so much. Scheduled for their sink soak on Friday the 29th. And I do have them in bright indirect locations. 🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻
@buglover72 - cute pupper! And your plants are awesome.
I've killed a handful of airplants myself 😩and I think 1 more is on it's way out. Make sure they get good airflow if you do soak them. I've fallen victim one too many times to what I thought was a dry airplant with damn innards that ended up rotting.. which I think is going on with one now.. blah... so simply yet so difficult. Lol
Damp** not damn.. oopsies
