Cape Town
Indoor Installation
Summer (spray weekly)

  • If temperatures exceed 35 degrees spray twice a week.

Winter (spray every second week)

  • If in doubt rather don’t water. Tillandsias do not like to be too wet.

Outdoor Installation

  • Same as above however if windy the plants will dry out quicker so spray twice per week.

Other areas in South Africa

  • If you live in an area with a low humidity (like Gauteng) we recommend that you start misting twice weekly and adjust as necessary, depending on how long it takes for your plant to dry in your space.
