So, you’ve just purchased a gorgeous air plant and it’s starting to flourish. Trouble is, you’ve noticed a furry substance on the leaves of your air plant. Is it mold? Or worse still, is it something that you should be really concerned about?
How cool is it knowing that your amazing Tillandsia will someday produce their very own baby air plants! And the cutest thing about these ‘baby’ air plants is that they’re affectionately known as pups.
So, what the heck is a Tillandsia? Whilst it might sound like a mythical creature, or something contagious you’d rather not catch, a Tillandsia is simply the scientific name of what’s more commonly known as an air plant.
