Have questions about Air Plants?

Ask Mr. Tillandsia!

Meet “Mr. Tillandsia

Paul T. Isley III –dubbed “Mr. Tillandsia” by his friends and fellow Air Plant enthusiasts in China– has been collecting, growing, and selling Tillandsia Air Plants since he fell in love with them in 1974. He distinctly remembers thinking, “How do these remarkable plants grow with no soil!?” He’s been hooked ever since!

Paul has made it his life’s work to better understand these amazing epiphytes and share their beauty with the world. In 1976, he founded Rainforest Flora, Inc. in Los Angeles along with his best friend and co-founder, Jerry Robinson. Paul has also written and revised the most extensive and complete book on Tillandsia Air Plants, titled Tillandsia II, as well as an introductory booklet –that’s perfect for beginners!– shown below:
