Air plants are beautiful, exotic and easy to care for. We provide complete instructions on how to care for your air plants in every shipment. Air plants need three things to stay healthy and happy; water, air and sunlight. Air plants do very well indoors and can withstand outside temps from 35 to 105 degrees.

Most or our air plants ship out in less than 24 hours and arrive via Priority Mail 2 to 3 days after shipping. Orders of $50 or more are shipped for free! Our air plants have a 30 day guarantee. If your air plants die within 30 days of receipt we will replace them at no cost to you. No questions asked, no return required. If you have any questions about air plants please email us at service@airplantshop.com and be sure to visit our About Us page to find out more about our little family business.

Care of Air Plants

Air 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.

To 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.

After 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

Air 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.

Your 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.

If 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.
