Cultivaton tips

Informations summarized here are based on our experiences, and TrekGEO does not guarantee the results by cultivating in the same or similar conditions described here. Even a species of Tillandsia differs substantially between individuals, and is very sensitive in changes of environments. Applicatons of any idea inspired by this site should be at your own risks.

Very high watering frequency cultivation

Grows very well. Same results as low watering frequency cultivation. It seems this species also grows well by high watering frequency cultivation but I have not tried yet.

Low watering frequency cultivation

Grows well. Possibly this species can be cultivated well even by very low watering frequency cultivation.
