Tillandsia Spanish Moss is a type of air plant that can be grown outdoors in the UK. Here are some care instructions to help your Spanish Moss thrive:
Light: Tillandsia Spanish Moss prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight in the morning or evening, but it should be shaded during the hottest part of the day.
Water: Spanish Moss can absorb moisture through its leaves, so it doesn't need to be watered as often as other plants. In the UK, rainfall and humidity can provide enough moisture for the plant to survive. However, if the weather is particularly dry or if the moss is growing in a sheltered area, you may need to mist it occasionally with a spray bottle or soak it in water for 20-30 minutes once a week.
Airflow: Spanish Moss needs good air circulation to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Make sure the plant is not crowded by other plants or objects that could restrict air flow.
- Temperature: In cooler zones, Spanish Moss dies as it cant tolerate temperature below 10°c for a long time. However, Spanish Moss can tolerate temperature down to -5°c. To overwinter it, keep it indoors hanging near a bright window. at a temperature between 10-21°c.
