These fascinating little plants have become quite popular over the last few years so I wanted to highlight them in my store! I love teaching people about air plants, please read about their care below. Or read my in-depth blog post about Tillandsia here.

LIGHT
Air plants should be kept where they'll receive bright, indirect sunlight or under fluorescent home/office lighting. Periods of direct sunlight are just fine, but more than a few hours of hot sun will deplete the plants of their moisture. If your plant will be in a spot with some pretty direct light, try misting them every couple of days to keep them hydrated.

WATER
Air plants live just on air, right? Not quite, they still need water! While the plants can survive for long periods of drought, they will not grow or thrive and will eventually die off if water is too scarce. I recommend giving them a thorough rinsing under running water or letting them soak in a bath of water for 20-30 minutes. You can use a bowl, the sink, or even the bathtub. After their shower or bath, gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set out to dry in an area with enough air circulation to dry them out in about 4 hours.
