Light: A limited amount of direct sunlight is fine, but more than a few hours of hot sun will deplete the plants of their moisture. Bright, indirect sunlight is ideal for air plants. If your plant will be in a spot with more direct light, try misting them every couple of days to keep them hydrated.
Water: Water your air plants once a week. To do so, fill a deep bowl with water and leave out overnight so any chlorine in the water can evaporate, or use filtered water. Once the water is ready, soak your air plants for 15 minutes to an hour. A longer, 2-hour soak occasionally can be beneficial as well. Completely submerge the air plant during this process, especially the center. To dry, gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set upside down for a few hours. If your plants show drying or curling leaves, they may need additional water between weekly baths. Try misting them with a spray bottle every few days and/or moving them away from direct sun or heat sources.
