Air plants: Care & Styling

Although air plants are pretty difficult to kill, it is a myth that these unique little plants need nothing but air! Here are some tips from us pros:

Air Plant Care:

  • Light: Bright, indirect light is best for air plants.. although, they can survive in an office with fluorescent lighting as well
  • Water: Soak your air plants in water for 20-30 minutes at least once a week! Make sure to shake out the excess water & set them out to dry for a few hours before returning them to their homes 
  • Mist: In-between waterings, give your air plants a light misting 
  • Trim: If some leaves get dry (usually the lower ones), simply snip them off
