Tillandsia Fasciculata

Tillandsia Fasciculata is an epiphytic plant that can be propagated by seed. The seeds should be sown in a well-draining soilless mix and kept moist. The container can be covered with plastic to maintain humidity. Germination usually occurs within 2-4 weeks, but may take longer. Once the seedlings have developed a few leaves, they can be carefully transplanted to a well-draining potting mix.

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.
