I have a vermiliad in a hanging basket, but am not sure what to do with it. I was told it doesn't need water, that it is an air plant. I am just not sure it seems to be dying. Any help would be great.
Thanks, Patty

Do you mean a bromeliad?

Some bromeliads can survive without any supplemental watering in areas of high humidity. Most commonly cultivated species can't.

Hey Patty - you might want to post a pic of it if you have a digital camera - it's hard to say which one you're talking about.
