Get ready to be blown away by the incredible Druid Air Plant, also known as Tillandsia ionantha 'Druid,' which is a vibrant member of the Tillandsia genus! 

Originating from Veracruz, Mexico, this unique clone was discovered amidst a shipment of plants imported by none other than Drew Schulz herself. Her husband lovingly named it 'Druid' in her honor, adding an element of mystery and intrigue to this already enchanting variety. 

With its petite size of 3 inches tall and wide and low-maintenance nature, it has won over the hearts of plant lovers worldwide. But here's where things get really exciting: imagine a stunning yellow-blushing clone that turns a vibrant golden yellow when in bloom (white flowers) instead of the usual red like other ionanthas. 

It has glossy, fuzzy trichomes on its bright green leaves. The leaves of the air plant will start to spread outward as it develops and grows. Most T. ionantha at this point will change to a darker green color. These plants spread widely and grow in attractive clumps over time. It can be easily propagated by stem cuttings and seeds. 

Watering Needs 

These air plants are epiphytic, which means they do not have a traditional root system, so they do not require watering like other succulents. 

Instead, they absorb water and nutrients through fine trichomes scales that are present on their leaves and are able to survive in a variety of environments. When it comes to watering these Tillandsia, it is important to provide them with enough moisture without overwatering them. One way to do this is to mist the plants with water every few days, making sure that the leaves are thoroughly wet.  

Alternatively, you can soak these air plants in water for 20-30 minutes once a week, making sure to shake off any excess water before returning them to their growing location. It is important to allow the Tillandsia air plants to dry completely before watering them again to prevent rot and other issues. 

Light Requirement 

Providing enough light for these hanging air plants is one of the most important aspects of their care. It is important to grow air plants in areas that receive at least 4-6 hours of bright, indirect light every day to maintain their deep green color. But it prefers to grow in areas with some partial shade. So, learn to adjust your succulent to avoid burns if the location where you have the plant is exposed to a lot of sunlight.   

If indoors, place your air succulents directly in front of a west- or south-facing window. If they don't receive enough light, their stems may grow leggy and become paler, and their spines will shorten, so, make your cactus happy and give it plenty of light.  

If you don't have a window that provides enough light, you can also use artificial light to provide the right amount of light for the druid plant. LED grow lights are a good choice, as they provide a full spectrum of light that is similar to natural sunlight. You can place the succulent under the grow light for 12-14 hours a day, making sure to give it a break from the light at night. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

Air plants don't require soil to grow, so there's no need to worry about soil type or quality. Instead, this Tillandsia ionantha druid absorbs moisture and nutrients from the air. If you're growing it indoors, you can place this air plant in an ornamental container or hang it from the ceiling using a wire or string. If you're growing it outdoors, you can attach it to a tree branch or other structure using a wire or string. 

 If you want to give your Tillandsia a boost, you can feed it occasionally with a natural fertilizer (NPK) in an equal ratio of 5-10-5. It's important to follow the instructions carefully and avoid over-fertilizing the plant. Over-fertilization can lead to burning and other issues.

Hardiness Zones & More 

These adorable air plants thrive in warm and humid conditions, making them perfect for cozy indoor spaces. With temperatures between 60- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit, these lovable air succulents are sure to feel right at home. Just make sure not to let them get too chilly - anything below 50 degrees Fahrenheit could spell disaster for your lovey-dovey Tillandsia.  

And if you live in USDA hardiness zone 10 - 11, lucky you - you can grow these cuties outdoors all year long! Tillandsia ionantha druid requires high humidity levels of around 50 to 60 percent. You can increase humidity levels by misting the plant with water once a week or placing it near a humidifier. Avoid placing these succulents in direct sunlight or near a heat source, as this can dry out the leaves.
