Virtual Learning: Air Plants 101
Join us on Zoom to learn how to grow and care for Tillandsias, also known as air plants. With more than 600 species, it is the largest genus in the bromeliad family of plants. They are very easy to care for and are a fun addition to your home. Since the roots are only used to attach the plants to trees, and water is absorbed through structures on the leaves; these plants grow without any soil. They come in a vast array of colors and patterns. Once considered rare, they have become very popular, and are very easy to care for. Chalet has one of the largest collections in the Chicagoland area.
