Air Plants, also referred to as Tillandsia, are one of the easiest plants to care for! With a smidge of TLC and consideration for the environment you put them in – they are destined to thrive. Air Plants are technically epiphytes, growing in nature on another tree, host, or object.  However, they don’t steal nutrients from their host.  Air plants use tiny vessels located throughout their leaves called trichomes to capture nutrients and moisture from the air. Tillandsia should not be planted in soil. This allows you to display them creatively, in a wide range of settings, vessels and spaces.
Air Plant Care
Keep your air plants happy in bright indirect light. Mist them thoroughly twice a week. Alternatively, dunk the plant face down in a sink or bowl of water and let it soak for 20 minutes, once a week. Shake excess water from the plant, to prevent any rot.
To ensure they receive the nutrients they need, add air plant fertiliser when you mist or soak them. We recommend using EasyGro Foliar Feed for Air Plants / 1 heaped scoop per litre of water.
