Here are a few shots of my other set up in the same room as the LED track lighting set up. These don9show about half the orchids and tillies that are there. I'll get other pics tommow.

What a great set up! I love the variety of plants!

I have some air plants but haven't gotten them to bloom or grow pups. I think I need to learn a little more about them.

Leaf mite, I only know enough to soak them about every four days. Mine do have pups and flower, but I really couldn't tell you the names of them. Es here on the OB knows quite a lot about tillies, but I've been hesitant to post about them in the Forum off-topic totally as I don't know their names. I have around 25 of them.

You might be able to identify most of your air plants by going to this or another vendor site. Mine all had names (though I really did not pay attention because my purpose was to make a living wreath. I bought them from Hinterland:

How to Care for Your Air Plant - Air Plant Care

Maybe gluing them onto the wreath wasn't the best idea. :|

To be honest I don't really care all that much about their names. Here are some not-so-good pics I have a couple. The one with the long long stem those are actually now dried pods that used to be flowers. I have a total of like 36 of them.

I don't know why my pictures come out either sideways or upside down. It's frustrating.

I am going to take better care of those air plants and hopefully get some pups and blooms.

I just saw the rest of this thread. Your Tillandsias look great!

I've seen a lot of them in the wild. They need a lot of sun to bloom and grow properly. They also get dew almost every night. Most have C4 metabolism and open their pores at night, meaning it is better to get them wet after dark. Their metabolism also means they don't do well when nights are over 80-85 F / 26-30 C.

Mark Dimmitt, former curator at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, recommends people growing them indoors spray them wet with water every evening, if possible. He also says to soak them in a sink overnight once a week.

I'm going to guess most people who struggle with them don't water enough and don't give enough light. I've seen them sold as terrarium plants for arrow dart frogs, but I don't think most of those terrariums have enough light.

Oh... and most bromeliads are intolerant of copper. Don't use copper-containing fertilizer with these plants. Don't use water collected from bronze fixtures. Pineapples tolerate copper in fertilizer.

Thank you ES! Don't know if you recall answering a post I put forth about strange brownish marks on some of my tillies. You had suggested that perhaps they are sunburned? They still have quite a lot of marks on them, and the particular ones I speak of are really looking rough. I'm going to try the watering method you mentioned from Mark Dimmitt and see if there's any improvement. I'm thinking that what ever damage there is won't 'repair' it's self, but new growth will be clear of those marks.
