Air Plant Care

Caring for your new little plants

Air plants live on air, right? Uh, not right! While air plants don’t grow in soil, they definitely NEED to be watered. 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. Follow the directions below for watering your plants on a regular basis and they will stay alive and well for quite some time. The good news is that since these plants are very forgiving, you shouldn’t stress over their care schedule. There’s certainly no need to get a babysitter when you go on vacation.

When you receive your air plant from the local garden shop or at our Etsy Shop, Printhousedesign1 make sure to give them a good soak in a little water bath (submerged in the rain water) for about 10-20 minutes. Shake gently to remove any excess water, and set in a spot with bright light and good air circulation to dry off. 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.

These few steps on watering and light can help flourish your new plant. Do you have any helpful air plant tips if so comment below!
