How to care for your Air Plant

LIGHT: Medium to bright indirect light, some early morning and/or evening sun is fine but avoid strong direct sun.

WATERING: Soak the whole plant in tepid water for 15-20 minutes once a week in spring/summer, less in winter. Shake off excess water and sit the plant upside down to allow excess water to drain before returning to position. Use rainwater if you live in a hard water area.

HUMIDITY: Enjoys humidity but will tolerate average home environments, avoid drying heat or cold draughts. Humidity can be increased by pebble trays, grouping with other plants or a humidifier.

TEMPERATURE: Enjoys warmth of 15-28°C. Avoid draughts.

FEEDING: Add a small amount of Orchid or Bromeliad fertilizer to the water you soak them in. Feed once a month in spring and summer only.

GROWTH: Compact growth. Can reach up to 20+ cm in height.

TOXICITY:   Safe for pets and people.
