- In order to thrive, air plants need bright, indirect light.
- Watering air plants is tricky because the needs of the plant vary dramatically with the space in which it is placed. Every one to two weeks soak your air plant in a tray filled with room temperature tap water for 5-10 minutes. After soaking, turn it upside down, shake off excess water and place it on a towel to dry. Very important! It should dry at max 3h. Once a week mist it while holding it upside down so that water does not get inside the base of the plant. Do all watering in the morning. Evening soaking or misting disrupts the plants ability to respire overnight and extends drying time.
- Air plants are pretty easy going when it comes to their temperature. They do best in 10-32°C degrees.
- This plant is toxic to pets.
