Tillandsia

Tillandsia (sometimes they are also called Kykatka) are interesting air plants in English airplants, which belong to the family of bromeliad plants. They live only from air and atmospheric moisture, which they absorb with their leaves. They grow attached to trees, bushes, even rocks, but not as parasites, but as epiphytes. This means that they only live on the plant, but do not take any nutrients from it. They come from subtropical and tropical South and Central America and the southern part of North America, elsewhere they are grown as houseplants. Cultivating tillandsias is undemanding, they do not need any pot or substrate. They look great in all kinds of terrariums, tied to a wooden base, bark, in pots, we can attach them to a snail shell or a seashell, there are no limits to imagination.

svetlo Light

The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.

zalivka Watering

Tillandsia can either be watered (thoroughly!) about twice a week (more times in the summer months) or once a week we submerge them completely in water and let them soak for 15-20 minutes. But we have to make sure that they dry well inside after watering, so we can put them upside down on a towel and let the water drain well. Avoid using hard water as it can clog their pores. The best is rainwater, or water that has been boiled and allowed to stand. Sometimes we can also add a special fertilizer for air plants to the water. Tillandsia can then bloom.

vzduch Humidity

The silvery fleshy species are more of a succulent type, so they require less water and air humidity. They will thrive freely in the home or in an open terrarium=aerarium. Conversely, species with smaller and greener leaves need more water and air humidity. They will therefore thrive in greenhouses, closed terrariums or moist containers.

mnozeni Propagation

It is propagated by seeds, which is a very slow process, or by cuttings from the mother plant.

problemy Common problems

  • If the inside of the plant does not dry out when soaked in water, it can start to rot.
  • If the plant is blooming, don't water it, it's just growing during that time. The flowers are delicate and susceptible to manipulation.
  • If the plant is twisted, very pale, gray to brown, it needs to be saturated with water.
  • The lower leaves sometimes dry out and turn brown - this is normal and nothing to worry about, just pluck them off gently.

How does DMP delivery work?

All plants and some accessories on our e-shop are sent directly from the grower in Holland. We want them to be at your place as soon as possible and not spend time going around different warehouses and stores. We ship part of our own products marked with the Made in DMP label directly from our warehouse in Prague.
Therefore, it may happen that you will be charged a higher price for shipping, because you have things in the basket both from the grower and from our own production.
If you have products worth CZK 2,000 (For SK 82 EUR) or more in your basket, you will always have FREE shipping!

For some products, such as a book or a physical gift voucher, you can choose the pick-up option in our brick-and-mortar store.

Personal collection is not possible for most goods, because the store does not offer the same range of plants and accessories as in the e-shop. If you are not sure about the choice, stop by in person and together we will choose or order the right one!
