Frank De Greef, Fleurizon:
"Holiday season increases tillandsia sales"
The tillandsia can be found in nature in the trees that are growing in Brazil. "Since these plants are growing “ in the air” they are also called air-plants. They are not parasites as the roots are not going into the tree itself. They grow normally in high humidity countries in the Americas. Lots of rain is what they like. However there are some varieties that like the dry (arid) air, like the majestic Tillandsia xerographica."

Easy to care
The tillandsia seems to fit well in holiday decorations and arrangements, but besides that - and this is probably what makes them extra appealing for the younger generation - it is also a plant that is easy to take care of. "A spray a week or just dipping in water for half an hour every week keeps them alive for a long time."

Fleurizon is getting these plants from farms who are reproducing them in nurseries, those nurseries don’t get them out of nature. "So we can enjoy them for generations to come."
A nursery where they grow tillandsias.
