The Tillandsia differ in green and gray Tillandsias. 

The green Tillandsia(rainforest-tillandsia) usually grow terrestrially in the shade in moist locations. On the window sill they prefer east and west windows, and their funnel should be regularly filled with water. Care should be taken to ensure that it dries quickly, otherwise the plants begin to rot.

The gray Tillandsia (Desert-Tillandsia) grow mainly epiphytic and prefer bright, sunny locations. They feed on morning and evening dew taken from the fine gray hairs. On the window sill, they should be sprayed on warm days, morning and evening with rain water. When cloudy, dull and overcast, spraying every 2-3 days is enough.

Rainforest Tillandsias

These Tillandsia species are suitable for planting in vivariums, terrariums and aqua-terrariums with high humidity. On the window sill they need some attention with regular spraying without waterlogging. In summer they can be grown outdoors.
