5 different species of air plants hand picked from our extensive collection, designer's choice.

    Light: Some 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: As a main method of watering your air plants, fill a deep bowl with water and leave out overnight so any chlorine in the water can evaporate. The next day, give them a soak in the bath of water for one hour once per week.  A longer, 2-hour soak is recommended every 2-3 weeks. Completely submerge the air plant during this process. Gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set upside down to dry in an area with enough air circulation to dry them out in about 4 hours. If your plants show wilting or curling leaves, they may need additional water between weekly baths. Try misting them with a spray bottle every few days.

    Special Instructions: It’s normal for some of the lower leaves of your air plant to dry out as the plant grows or acclimates to a new environment. Gently pull or clip these leaves off of the plant as needed. If the leaf tips have dried out, you can snip the dried tip off at an angle. The same can be done for the plant's roots.
