During the spring letís regularly use a fertilizer rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour the development of the new vegetation; fertilization is done by adding fertilizer to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days.

Water Tillandsia cyaneaTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Pests Tillandsia cyanea
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
