Tillandsia complanata

Tillandsia complanata: Tillandsia complanata, a type of air plant, can be propagated by seed or by division of offsets. To germinate the seeds, scatter them on top of a well-draining potting mix and mist them with water until the soil is moist. Keep the soil warm (around 70-75�F) and humid, covering the pot with a plastic bag or dome, until germination occurs, which can take up to 4-6 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
