Air plants or Tillandsia, a type of Bromeliad, are tropical and subtropical plants that have adapted to life in trees or other substrates. These plants acquire their moisture and most nutrients from the air and rainfall. If temperatures and hours of sunlight are kept similar to their native habitats, they will display brilliant flowers once a year. LiveTrends has conducted extensive testing to compile a selection of tillandsia for your indoor environment.
WATER: Keep moist by misting with water once a week. Plants will indicate their need for water by becoming dull in color and shrunken if very dry.
LIGHT: Display in medium to bright artificial light or near a window in indirect sunlight.
TEMPERATURE: 60-80F. Do not expose to extreme temperatures.
FERTILIZER: Plants will survive without any fertilizing, however, you can mist or soak with a solution of balanced houseplant food at ¼ recommended strength once a month during warm growing seasons.
