PRODUCT INFORMATION

De Tillandsia Schiedeana komt oorspronkelijk voor in semi-droge gebieden in Mexico, Midden-Amerika, Venezuela en Colombia. Op hoogtes van 200 tot 1700 meter is dit luchtplantje groeiende in open tropische bossen. De Tillandsia Schiedeana is vernoemd naar de verzamelaar/botanist Christian Julius Wilhelm Schiede. Dit luchtplantje is erg uniek vanwege zijn aparte vorm, met dunne sprietachtige groene bladeren die vanuit de ‘(hoofd)stam/tak’ strak naar buiten gaan. In de bloeiperiode van het luchtplantje Tillandsia Schiedeana zal er een grote bloemachtige tak ontstaan die rood/geelachtige bloemetjes geeft.

Air plant care

The name air plants says it all: the plants do not need potting soil to grow. Air plants are epiphytes, plants that originally grow on trees and plants in the jungle and live off the humidity in the air. However, the humidity in the house is not as high as in the jungle. Therefore, air plants need some care to stay as happy, fresh and fit as possible! 

Light

Air plants love light, although direct sunlight is less appreciated by some air plant species. Air plants are preferably placed in indirect sunlight so that they can best convert their nutrition and water into glucose, which enables the growth and vitality of the plants.

Air

An important aspect in the care of your air plants is the circulation of air. Air plants originally grow in open environments in the wild and because they are used to this, they love an airy environment. Although air plants also do well in places with less air circulation, fresh air is highly appreciated by our green friends.

Water

Air plants can be watered in two ways. You can either spray the air plants with water in combination with the Tillandsia nutrient spray, or soak them in a bath of water. We call this a airplant-retreat, because this method ensures that your air plants remain extra strong and healthy! We recommend using a combination of both methods. Spray twice a week and use the soaking method once a month. See below for an explanation of the airplant retreat. 

It is important to keep an eye on the leaves of the air plant. You can see from the leaves how the air plant feels and if it is thirsty or not.

Airplant-Retreat

Air plants can be cared for by means of the soaking method, or the air plant retreat. We advise you to bathe your air plants in water once a month. Do this besides the normal care, which is spraying

Step-by-step plan Airplant-Retreat
1. Fill the bath with lukewarm water, preferably rainwater but tap water is also an option.

2. Then immerse your air plants.

During this bathing session, the air plant fills itself with water.

3. Then take them out of the water after 20-30 minutes.

4. Important! Shake the water off your air plants and let them dry. If the water remains between the leaves of the air plants, the leaves might rot. 

The bath will make your plant shine again, and its life span will be extended. It is also highly recommended if your air plants are starting to lose colour or look less healthy.

Too much water

Air plants can recover from many neglects. Compared to other plants, they can easily live a longer period (4-8 weeks) without water. However, they cannot recover from an overdose of water.

It is therefore important to keep a close eye on your air plants and to feel if they have not received too much water. Below are a number of symptoms that can give you guidelines for care.

Recognising symptoms

Water shortage
- Curly leaves
- Brown tips on the leaves

Excessive water
- The leaves look soaked
- Air plant does not absorb water within 4 hours

Tip: Are the plants not drying fast? Then put them outside in the sun for a while! In nature, the sun and wind help evaporate excess water.

How do air plants absorb water?

Air plants have no, or very small, roots that are often only used to cling to trees or other plants. Air plants absorb their nutrients through their 'trichomes'. These are small fuzzy hairs on the leaves of the air plant. Through these trichomes, nutrients are extracted from the air and rain. Remarkable, isn't it?

Duurzaam verpakt en vers verzonden

Wij vinden het belangrijk om goed te zorgen voor moeder natuur. Zij zorgt tenslotte voor al het moois dat om ons heen groeit en bloeit en dat willen we graag zo houden! Wij willen ervoor zorgen dat de planten in dezelfde staat bij jou aankomen als dat deze bij ons uit de kwekerij zijn weggegaan. Daarbij wordt ook rekening gehouden met de impact op het milieu. Zo verzenden wij de bestellingen in dozen die gemaakt zijn van gerecycled karton. Ook verpakken wij alle artikelen in papier en proberen wij het gebruik van plastic zoveel mogelijk te reduceren om uiteindelijk in de toekomst helemaal 100% plasticvrij te werken.

Tillandsia nursery

Sustainable nursery

We get all our air plants directly fresh from our own family nursery. The nursery grows in a sustainable way and is MPS - Global G.A.P. certified. This certificate means that the air plants meet requirements in terms of traceability (the path taken by the plant), environment, hygiene and safety. In other words, the air plants have a good and sustainable background, are in good hands and will hopefully end up in good hands with you.

Tillandsia kwekerij

Oorsprong van luchtplanten

Oorspronkelijk komen onze luchtplanten uit Midden-Amerika, maar ze zijn ook te vinden in Zuid-Amerika en Thailand. In deze landen leven de plantjes in de natuur aan bomen, en is het ten strengste verboden om de luchtplanten uit de natuur te halen. Onze luchtplanten groeien op kwekerijen in Midden-Amerika uit zaad of als pup aan een moederplant. Zo wordt er geen één plant uit de natuur gehaald en zorgen we er met z’n allen voor dat de plantjes alleen vermeerderen op natuurlijk wijze door middel van zonlicht en (regen)water. De luchtvochtigheid in Midden-Amerika is erg hoog, waardoor de planten op een gezonde en mooie wijze uitgroeien van zaadje tot luchtplant.

Echter is de luchtvochtigheid in huis is niet zo hoog als in deze landen. Daarom hebben de luchtplanten nog wel wat verzorging nodig om zo blij, fris en fit mogelijk te blijven! Lees hiermeer over de verzorging.
