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.

Low watering frequency cultivation

Managed to keep the foliage but leaves at the bottom of the foliage tend to die. Hopefully this plant can be cultivated better by the very high watering frequency cultivation.
