Tillandsia are epiphytes, that is to say they do not grow in the ground, so they do not need a pot or potting soil. You can simply place it on a shelf, or put it in a terrarium, or on a wooden board or a tree branch with moss, where its roots can possibly hold on. You can tie them with a thread at the start. They have very small roots, since they are only used to cling and not to seek nutrients, they are under the rosette of leaves. They like good light, even intense, but without direct sunlight. They can be placed in a room with windows located to the south or west, without being close to the window to avoid the sun. They can even be placed outside during the summer, in the shade, since they also like good ventilation. To water it, you can bathe it, soak it in lukewarm water, approximately every two weeks, and spray it every week.
