Care tips

//

Sunlight 

Bright indirect light to some sun is ideal. Increase humidity with increased light to avoid dry out. 

Water 
All water must be filtered or purified. Air plants love high humidity so keep them in a bathroom or kitchen or mist them every other day with a spray bottle. They can also be dunked in warm water quickly, then shaken gently to dry, like a simulated rain shower. Let the air plants completely dry before applying more water. Air plants should dry out in 1-3 hours, or they risk rotting. Water should not pool in the center (if applicable). Soaking dry air plants in warm water is possible, but for an hour maximum and must dry in 3 hours as well. (Learn more about water requirements here
Humidity 

High humidity is ideal. Regular misting with a spray-bottle will help raise the humidity. 

Temperature 

18°C-30°C. Not below 15°C.
