Aeranthos and it's closely related pal bergeri are among the more commonly available Tillandsias due to their prolific nature (lots of babies) and ease of pollination (a humming bird favorite!). These plants can adapt to a wide range of conditions; as small plants they prefer shade or indirect light, and as they get older they can start to tolerate more sunlight and less frequent waterings.
