We here at Plantuary love a good airplant (or tillandsia), but in order to keep these guys happy it is important to know a thing-or-two about their care!
Contrary to what their name implies, airplants do need water to survive. Just like any of our other green loves, without H2O these plants will dry out and shrivel up. To keep airplants hydrated, we recommend fully submerging them in a bowl of water for about 20 minutes every two weeks or so. Once the soak is complete, set the plant upside down to dry; this will prevent the bulbous end from retaining water and rotting. After the airplant is fully dry, just pop that beauty back in it's home and enjoy!
Speaking of homes, how should you display an airplant? One beautiful way to do so is in a glass bowl or terrarium. Plantuary works to sell our airplants in vessels that make the removal of the plant for watering easy, while also providing your home or office with an attractive live piece.
