Description

The Tillandsia Funckiana is a wild and winding air plant. The needle-like leaves that wind up and down this plant resemble that of a pine tree, yet is very soft to the touch. Resembling that of an evergreen or a caterpillar, they also have a lovely muted light green colouring and a strong, woody base and stretch towards their light source. The lovely light colouring is the perfect accent to any setting or colour scheme. It will eventually develop lovely light blush pink tips as well. When in bloom, it will spike and flower, and will produce a beautiful and vibrant orange-red colouring. which is a rarer colour for air plants.

It is also a hardier plant, which is very good for novice plant owners.

Landscape Uses

Suitable for Container, Hanging Garden & Xeriscaping

Air plants are unique - they Don't need soil, absorbing water and nutrients through scales on their leaves. Although caring for air plants is really easy, but if not done right it can quickly lead to the plant drying up.

Air plants need regular sprinkling of water on their leaves. However once a week, air plants need to be submerged in water. Take a big enough container and fully submerge your air plant for 3-4 hours. Once soaked, you need to dry them off completely! Hence shake them and put them on a soft towel. Place them under a bright spot for 2-3 hours so that there is no excess water on it. Make sure to dry them or air plants get a root rot very quickly.

Bright filtered or indirect light is ideal for air plants. Morning sun is healthy for the plants, however afternoon sun can quickly burn the leaves. Use a fertiliser once a month in the water when you soak the air plants to keep it healthy.
