Air Plants Plant Care


In order for Air Plants to thrive properly indoors you must make sure that they are near an adequate light source. Take precaution to not let your air plants get too much direct sun, as this can be harmful, even in an indoor environment. Air Plants should be placed within 3-5 feet of a window. An artificial light source would be acceptable.  If you are keeping your plants outside, make sure they are in a area that remains shaded for most of the day to prevent prolonged periods of sun exposure.

If you live in an area with freezing conditions, make sure your air plants are indoors.



Air Plants must be watered at least once a week.  Try to store your plants in a place that will sustain humidity the best. Prevent them from drying up too quickly by moving them from places where they may come in contact with heating elements. Misting plants may be needed between watering, but misting should not be the only method of watering.

If your Air Plants look dried out place the plants face down in a container filled with spring water and let them soak for 10-20 minutes.  Gently shake off any excess water from the base of the plants, as sitting water can cause rot and kill the plant. Its important that after watering, the plants have enough air circulation to dry within 4 hours.
