Care of Air Plants
plants are very hardy and easy to care for. We have seen them survive
up to 2 weeks in a shipping box with no light or water(Do not try that
at home). When your new air plants arrive you will want to open the box
immediately. We ship our air plants via fast 2 to 3 day Priority Mail
but like all plants they want light, air and water.
lower the stress of the shipping you will want to soak your air plants
in room temperature water for 30 to 40 minutes. Just fill a bowl with
good water and submerge the plants completely. Municipal water often has
some chemicals such as chlorine and/or fluoride. If you have well
water, pond water, creek water or rain water your air plants will love
that. You can also use bottled spring water. Do not use distilled water
as it has fewer natural minerals and nutrients that air plants like. As
air plants do not live in soil they get all of their moisture, light and
nutrients through their leaves.
their soak, remove your air plants from the water, gently shake off the
excess water and lay the plants out so they can dry completely before
placing them in a display. A nice sunny window sill is a perfect place
to let them dry and soak up some sunlight. Do not place your air plants
in direct sunlight, they like bright indirect sunlight. If you are
planning on putting them in a glass terrarium, a wall hanging display or
any kind of enclosure (or in a hole to stand them up), it is important
that you allow your air plants to dry completely.
Do not plant your air plants in soil as the moisture in the soil would lead to rotting
Do not let them stay wet for long periods of time to avoid rotting
Yes, you may cut the unsightly roots off and peel or trim off the brown leaves
plants gather nutrients through their leaves and have no use for soil.
Their roots are nature’s way of attaching air plants to rocks or trees.
air plants will dry within one to two hours. Once they are dry you
will want to display them in an area with plenty of bright, indirect
sunlight. Do not place them in direct sunlight as this will dry them
out very quickly. Typically, your air plants will only need a 30 minute
soak in water once per week. If they are in a very dry or warm
environment you may need to spritz them with water once a week in
addition to the soak.
You will know if they are getting too dry if their
leaves begin to curl. Give them a good soak if you see this happening.
you display your air plants in a manner that does not allow soaking
them in a bowl of water you can spray them with
water two or three times
per week instead.
