Air Plants

I gained an interest in Air Plants. Do you guys know how to care for them? I do know they thrive in temperatures between 50-90 and need to be misted and soaked every week(misting every few days).
My favorite CP is the venus fly trap, my first love and gateway into the CP world. What's your entry plant into this addiction hobby?

My wife grows tillandsia on a south-facing kitchen windowsill. Every week or so she floats them in water for several hours. They're doing fine - they grow well and regularly flower in their season.

It really depends on your local climate, but I just spray mine every morning (one particularly dry climate species I've started only spraying once a week.) I gave up on soaking years ago since it was a pain to move the plants all the time and I realized it was unnecessary.
