Air Plants

by Kenneth » Mon Apr 23, 2018 3:12 pm

I gained an interest in Air Plants. Do you guys know how to care for them? I do know they thrive in temperatures between 50-90 and need to be misted and soaked every week(misting every few days).
I just want to be a Mach speed super creature.. Then and only then I can have every plant I could ever want.

My wife grows tillandsia on a south-facing kitchen windowsill. Every week or so she floats them in water for several hours. They're doing fine - they grow well and regularly flower in their season.

It really depends on your local climate, but I just spray mine every morning (one particularly dry climate species I've started only spraying once a week.) I gave up on soaking years ago since it was a pain to move the plants all the time and I realized it was unnecessary.
