    Default Sterilizing Tillandsias (air plants)

    The title is self explanatory. I'm preparing for a vivarium build, and I got some nice air plants I'd like to include. It seems for potted plants a bleach dip is recommended, but I feel like this would kill an otherwise healthy tillandsia. Please note I've had them inside since early October, so pesticides, if there ever were any, should be washed off by now. Anyone out there have any experience with these? Thanks!

    I normally just soak everything under water for about an hour, hang them dry overnight then put them in. I'd be more worried about plants with roots connected to soil than air plants
