A large variety of sizes and species included in each pack: Each air plant you receive is hand-selected and will range from 4 to 10 inches in size. We only send our best-looking Tillandsias, and we make sure to include several fast-blooming species (such as Ionantha) in every pack. A detailed care guide is also included with every pack, as well as an 8 oz atomizer bottle for watering and/or fertilizing your air plants. This atomizer bottle makes a very fine mist that is ideal for watering tillandsia's.
These indoor plants don't need soil to grow, so they can flourish in many different environments. Additionally, they require only a moderate amount of light and only need watering about once a week, making them the lowest-maintenance plants available!
What separates these unique plants from other plants are their leaves, which have adapted to absorb water and nutrients from the air. This allows air plants to thrive when they are suspended in the air or grown atop driftwood and rocks. Air plants are perfect for terrariums, cages, and glass containers with holes or gaps that allow for plenty of air flow. There are a myriad of other creative ways to display air plants; the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Air plants make excellent gifts for house-warming or other occasions. They also work wonderfully as desktop decorations for your office or home desk. We recommend keeping air plants where they receive a moderate amount of light. Indirect sunlight and artificial home/office lighting are appropriate for these plants. It's generally safe to keep air plants in direct sunlight for a short period of time each day, but we recommend misting them with water to keep them from drying out. The optimal way to water these air plants is to mist them lightly 2-3 times per week. If you find the leaves of your air plants are becoming soft or pale in color, this means the plant is too dry and should be watered more often.
Air plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, though most primarily feature green leaves. Many of our air plants also exhibit stunning pink blooms. The plants you receive may or may not already have blooms.
