Air Plant Common Mistakes

Airplants for the most part are magnanimous, if you’re a beginner you are likely to make errors during caring for your plants.

The larger Airplants like the Tillandsia Secunda, reaches a gigantic proportion. This is one tillandsia air plant, that will grow in a large pot indoors, as long as it is placed into a quick draining soil mix. You can grow it as a normal air plant, mounted on driftwood. The tillandsia flower will last a long time, with new plants appearing on the ended blooms.

Where To Place My Air plants
Where you opt to site your air plant will have an almost certain effect on it’s health. Air plants need adequate light as well as good air movement. I suggest not keeping your air-plants outside, or in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

When Should I Water my Airplants
How you water your air plant, is really important. Most people use a spray bottle and lightly mist the plant every few days. Once every few months give it a 2 or 3 hour soak in the kitchen sink in fresh clean water.

Once you remove the plant from it’s soaking, it’s so important to give it a few gentle shakes from side to side, while holding it upside down to remove any excess water. Allowing water to sit on the plant over a long period of time, will cause it to rot and may die.
