Most of you will know me as an air plant but my
special name is Tillandsia and I am epiphytic.
This means that I’m quite special and don’t require
any soil to live in!
I can survive in a multitude of environments and i am quite
independent requiring very little effort to nurture.
I don’t grow very quickly in size but they say the best things come in small packages.
I promise to always give you my best smile if you give me a little drink or take me out for a swim every now and then.
•I like a good spray of water every week Or A good swim
for 5 minutes once a fortnight.
•when I’m in the sun all the time I get a bit thirstier and would
like a spray of water every few days.
•I’m quite a tough little fellow however if you forget me for a few weeks I promise to forgive you if you take me out
and let me swim for a good hour so I can rehydrate.
I’ll be quite happy after that if you decide to
take another holiday.
How To build my HOME
1 I won’t ask for much but I WOULD like a good soak in a bowl of water until my house is built.
2 First sit my glass house onto a steady flat surface and spoon the tiny pebbles in.
3 I love seashells because it makes me feel like I’m at the beach so please sprinkle some around
avoiding the middle where I plan to sit and relax.
4 Now that my home is ready please help me shake off any excess water and place me in the middle, pushing me down slightly to ground me a little.
5 I don’t mind if my house is hanging in the air or if it’s sitting on your desk, I’m sure I can trust your building skills and that I will be a very happy friend in here for a long time.
