T. Bulbosa 'Belize' or 'Guatemala' Air Plant is an easy to grow and care for houseplant and it does not need soil. It absorbs nutrients and water from the air through scales on its leaves. It does not need much light to thrive. This one has a bulb-like bottom and grows new ones from the existing one that you can keep together or separate into multiples.
Don’t put it in an enclosed terrarium as it needs air. It is epiphytic, which means it grows on other plants, not in the ground. No soil or dirt. You can put it in creative places. Place one in a shallow bowl or vase filled with rocks or sand, place one in a tiny container with a magnet and put it on the fridge, or tie it to driftwood with a translucent fishing line. Mist it every two days. Need bright light no direct sun. Check out our DIY Terrariums for examples.
There are 2 versions of this one, a small and a large. The small measures 0.5 - 1 inch wide and up to 6 inch long and large 1.5 - 2 inch long and about 8-10 inches. It does have roots and a bit of an unwieldy growth habit (which is why we love them so much) so those may vary as each is unique.
