All About Air Plants

Air Plants

Also known as tillandsias or ‘tillies’, air plants are in the bromeliad family, the same as pineapples. You can see the resemblance to a pineapple top in many air plants species. Air plants are epiphytes, needing no soil in which to grow. All their nutrients come from the air, making them a versatile and easy plant to take care of. Although they live on air, they do need some attention to stay alive and thrive especially in our dry climate.
Daily misting is helpful, but a weekly soak is even better, submerging the air plant in room temperature water for an hour or so every week. If the plant has a bloom on it, try to avoid wetting the bloom. Gently shake off excess water to dry completely before placing it back on display. Any trapped water within the plant can cause rot. The leaves will feel stiffer and look a bit darker when they’re hydrated. Soft, shriveled or rolled leaves and paler foliage is a sign of dehydration. Air plants enjoy a brightly lit spot with good air circulation. They can adapt to a wide range of room temperatures from 50 to 90 degrees. Displaying air plants can be as simple as placing a few on a decorative plate or as elaborate as a Pinterest-worthy piece of art. Glass terrariums, mason jars, driftwood or decorative rocks are easy props for display. A simple search on Pinterest will give you a plethora of design ideas or allow your own creativity to have fun and run wild with amazing air plants!
