🦄🌈🔆About Air Plants🔆🌈🦄
Tillandsia Air plants are native to Central and South America. They use their trichomes on their leaves to absorb nutrients from the air. They have grabbers that look like roots that can be taken off with scissors. They use these grabbers to attach themselves to trees, rocks & other plants. The majority of Air Plants flower. Most have pink or purple flowers. They only flower when they have hit maturity, this varies from plant to plant. When Air Plants are about to hit full bloom they can blush as well. This is when the leaves turn colors, usually these colors are pink and red hues. But wait, there is more! Air plants all produce "PUPS". These are babies that will traditionally grow around the base of the air plant. Pups usually come in right before, during , or after flowering! Pups can be taken off when they are about half the size of the mother plant!
►►►►IMPORTANT NOTE: We never add color to our plants. We believe that they should grow naturally, without intervention.
We hope that you enjoy your plant and it's natural growth and changing process.
