CARING FOR YOUR AIR PLANTS 

Tillandsias grow differently than most other house plants, so they can be confusing to the beginner. They are really very hardy, and require much less attention than other house plants. The following simplifies the instruction but you can scroll down for much more specific information.

  1. Provided the atmosphere is not too dry they can survive with water misting and the occasional bath.

  2. Give them bright, filtered light

  3. Protect them from frosts.

  4. If you are growing them indoors and the air is dry, you will need (at minimum) to submerge the plant in water for 2-3 hours about every two weeks.

  5. In a shaded-house or unheated home, you can use a soaking mist once or twice a week in summer, once a month in cooler weather.

  6. After a soaking or misting, it is extremely important to make sure your air plants can completely dry, especially before placing them back into a terrarium or container. To ensure your air plants dry, place them in some indirect sunlight. You can place them upside down on top of a towel to let the water drip down the leaves, similar to drying a cup. Allow a few hours for the plant to fully dry, as air plants are very susceptible to rotting if they are left wet too long.

Soaking method
