Blooming Air Plants

Do air plants bloom flowers?

Yes, every air plant will only bloom once in its lifetime. Once the flower has dried up, you should trim off the entire flower stalk, as this will promote “pupping. Tillandsia “Pups” are simply new plants forming at the base of the plant.

How do I get my air plant to bloom?

Most healthy Tillandsia will bloom eventually, but they require proper care and plenty of light in order to do so. To help speed up the blooming process, you can use a diluted fertilizer like our specially formulated Air Plant Food once per month or so to encourage blooms and pup production.

How long does it take for air plants to bloom?

In their natural habitat, it takes much longer for the air plants to bloom. The time of the bloom varies even in the same species of air plants let alone in different types. The same species of air plants that might bloom in 5-7 years in one environment might take around 25 years to bloom in another environment.

Flowering is the peak of the air plant life cycle, but also marks the beginning of the plant’s old age -after it flowers, the plant will eventually die. But don’t despair! Just before, during or after flowering, depending on the species, your air plant will reproduce by sending out 2-8 “pups”.

You can buy air plants at your local garden shop or at our Etsy shop http://www.printhousedesign.com
