Air Plants

  • Water: Keep humid by misting once a week. Plants will indicate their need for water by becoming dull in color and shrunken if very dry.
  • Light: Medium-bright artificial light indoors or near a window without direct sunlight.
  • Temperature: 60-80F, similar to orchids. Being tropical plants, they do not like temperature extremes.
  • Fertilizer: Plants will survive without any fertilizing, however, if you wish to encourage growth, mist or soak with a solution of balanced house plant food at ¼ recommended strength once a month during warm growing seasons.


  • Water: Allow plants to dry before watering. Don’t worry if plants become very dry, they will go slightly dormant without harm. Use approximately 2oz of water every two weeks.
  • Light: Bright artificial light indoors or near a window without direct sun. In warm weather (always above 40 degrees) they can grow on an outside porch but no direct sunlight.
  • Temperature: These plants tolerate a wide range of temperatures from 40-90F. Do not allow to freeze and keep away from air conditioning or heating vents.
  • Fertilizer: Balanced house plant food once per month at ½ strength during warm growing seasons (IMPORTANT be sure to water with clear water first since your plants will be dry)
