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!

Seed Starting 101

 

 

Longer season veggies such as tomatoes, winter squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and peppers are best started indoors anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date. Generally, mid to late March is a good time to start these crops.

  • Begin with a clean seedling tray or small pots. Ensure there are holes for drainage.
  • Select a sunny, warm spot away from hot or cold drafts.
  • Use high quality seedling mix and dampen the mix before you fill your containers. Do not use garden soil or compost, as these may contain harmful pathogens or fungi.
  • Using a pen or chopstick, make a ¼ inch hole and plant one or two seeds in each hole.
  • Gently top each hole with more seedling mix.
  • A clear plastic top can be used to retain moisture during germination.
  • Ensure the soil stays moist, but not soggy. A plant mister works well for this.
  • Once plants have reached about 2-3 inches and have several sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted into larger containers.

Not all seeds benefit from an early start. The following seeds are best sown directly into the garden at planting time: Beans, peas, carrots, beets, radish and turnips.  Leafy greens such as chard, kale and spinach and zucchini are easily grown from seed outdoors and don’t need to be started indoors.
