How to Water an Air Plant

Like us, air plants need water too!

Air plants are a pretty and hardy plant and this means low-maintenance and relatively little attention; but you cannot just pop them into a terrarium or stick them on a shelf and forget about them.  Air plants need to eat and their natural food is water.

Here’s how to water it:

Place the plants in a bowl with clean water. Let soak for 10-15 minutes. Gently shake  any excess water off the base of the air plants.

Another way to water your air plant is the misting method, which consists of spraying all surfaces of the air plant between 4-6 times.
