Thank you for visiting!

"Tillandsia are members of the bromeliad family and are native to tropical regions such as Central and South America. They don't root in soil, but rather attach themselves to trees and receive the nutrients they require from the air and rainfall. Air plants come in a wide spectrum of colors, shapes and sizes. All varieties will flower and live at a fuss factor just above rocks." -Susan Dunlap, McClatchy Newspapers.

Tillandsias are really very hardy plants and require much less attention than other house plants. Start by completely submerging your new plant for 20-30 minutes after bringing it home - turn it upside down, shake off the excess water and set it in an area with good air circulation to completely dry before placing in your hand crafted mudpuppy air plant container.

People tend to think of these plants as needing little or no water (i.e. living on air) but your plant does indeed need to be watered regularly. It is as easy as running the entire plant under the faucet 2 to 3 times a week. Your plant will also appreciate a good soaking, submerged in water, for several hours every 1 to 2 weeks. Spray misting is insufficient as the sole means of watering.

Air plants prefer bright, filtered light.

Truly spectacular plant. I ordered three for an oblong planter, and they are gorgeous. Arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

I try to be as exact as I can when it comes to shipping costs cause I know it can be expensive...especially for overseas clients. When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. I am unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and the buyer will be responsible for these fees or taxes so please factor that into your purchase. Here are some general guidelines i have garnered from my research but the best bet would be to consult your nearest postal authority:

UK: If your goods (excluding shipping cost) exceed £15, you'll pay an additional 20% VAT on the entire cost of your order (including shipping), plus an £8 "handling fee" to Royal Mail. If your goods (excluding shipping cost) exceed £135, you'll also have to pay an additional 12% "customs duty" on the entire cost of your order (including shipping).

Canada: Flat $5 handling fee for USPS shipments.

Germany: Anything under €22 (price + shipping) is free of customs duties and import taxes, packages between €22-150 you’ll pay sales tax on price + shipping (19% as of August 2014), and over €150 you’ll pay sales tax and customs. (Thanks, Thorben.)

Brazil: Anything over $50 (including delivery) gets hit with a tariff and customs which can double the cost. Do yourself a favor, order only one item at a time. You'll spend more on shipping but avoid the painful customs.

The Netherlands: A friend told us that anything over €22 (price & shipping) gets hit with sales tax (typically around 20% of the price including shipping). Anything over €150 will need to pay both sales taxes and customs.

Australia: Nothing to pay for import goods valued at up to AUD1,000 (~USD850). (Thanks, Clem.)

Turkey: a friend told us there is a limit of €75 per shipment for customs. If the value of shipment exceeds that, you pay +20% of the total sum. (Thanks, Zeki.)

Sweden: 12% customs tax (of the total value of the order). 25% sales tax of the customs tax value. (Thanks, Martin.)

Denmark: Any package from outside the European Union that costs less than 80 DKK for the items themselves will have no duties or taxes. Any package equal to or above 80 DKK, customs will add a fee of 128 DKK plus a sales tax of 25% on the entire amount. (Thanks, Jesper.)

Norway: Anything under NOK 350 (price + shipping) is free of customs duties and import taxes, if above that you pay 25% sales tax on the total sum. Customs tax depends on the kind of goods ordered, i.e. clothes are 10,7% which are added before the sales tax. (Thanks, Jacob.)
