I was given an air plant as a gift & was stunned! I now have many different varieties, 1/2 of which arrived a little over a month ago. I mist them daily & submerge weekly , more often for the less fleshy varieties. Thing is most of them are blooming! They're beautiful but, I'm confused. 2 weeks ago I put 1 drop super thrive in their bath water & I assume this must be the reason; my concern is my 2 large stricta; they sit in the crown of my yuccas trees 5 ft away from a skylight. 1 has shot out a flower from the middle on a stalk apporx 2.5-3" but it's almost white (slight pink color) looks like a tiny albino pinecone! The other stricta (purchased same vendor, same time) is developing a deep pink flower but its deep w/in the leaves still. Only from certain angles or extremely up close can you see the flower. Perhaps I should e diluted the fert more?
Anyone have expierence w/ air plants? My caput medusae is forming a normal bloom though & 2 fuschii v gracilis have been flower bearing for a month! ( prior to the fert)
