Have a read about this plant below.

Habitat Needs

Being quite versatile, air plants can be displayed in a variety of ways. From cute little pots, to terrariums, fairy gardens and so much more. The possibilities are endless.


Lighting Needs

Air Plants can tolerate low light but do best in brighter lighting conditions. This means close to a window but not directly in the sun. If this plant is left in the sun rays, it can cause it to scorch. This may seem confusing, but just remember, no direct sunlight and your plant will be happy.

Watering Needs

To water air plants, fill a bowl with water and place the plant in the bowl and allow it to soak for 5-10 minutes on one side. Flip over the plant and repeat. Remove the plant from the water and place it face down on a towel in bright light to allow it to properly dry to prevent rotting. Spritz your air plants with water from a mister 1-2 times a week. 

Temperature Needs

Being a tropical plant, air plants thrive well in such conditions. They will do well in temperatures 50-90 degrees fahrenheit. These plants will also do well if a humidifier is in the space for drier climates. 

Nutrient Needs

You can give your plants an air plant specific fertilizer a few times a year.  

We hope this helped any new plant parents. Happy Planting!
