Q. What type of fertilizer is best to help air plants (Tillandsia) re-bloom?

Answer

Some Tillandsia blooms can last for months but a single plant is unlikely to rebloom. Start new plants from offsets to enjoy more flowers.

A bromeliad fertilizer, or an acidic fertilizer at quarter strength, twice a month and applied with a sprayer, is the right feed for your plant. Or add in a lower concentration whenever you water the plant. Avoid fertilizers with boron, copper or zinc which can be damaging to air plant.
