Tillandsia Stricta is one of the more prolific air plants in the Tillandsia Genus. Often growing in large clumps, these plants are known for their beautiful neon pink bloom. The downside to their blooms is that they have a relatively short life-span: 2 to 3 weeks.
The upside is that after Stricta produce their bloom, they begin the process of creating offsets, which will in turn bloom within the next year or two.
All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
Bright indirect sunlight.
No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.
Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Stricta will also benefit from a soaking bath every week. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent rot.

Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
